Our master shoemakers crafted this shoe using the finest vegan and sustainable materials. The upper and lining are made with 100% recycled cotton. Our recyclable outsole is made with 10-12% recycled plastic removed from the ocean.

The intricate embroidery is inspired by indigenous tattoo motifs. Among the Dayak people, such as the Iban and Pantang, tattoos have carried various meanings over the generations. They can indicate a person's achievements or be worn as protection against malicious spirits, among other things. In this design, you can find several powerful symbols. At the center is the Bunga Terung, or rosette, representing valiance and courage, with the spiral symbolizing the circle of life. On the sides are scorpions, which were commonly tattooed on the warriors of Borneo for protection in battle.

Emerald of the Equator Collection

When designing the Solana Indonesia Collection, we aimed to capture the feeling of our experience traveling around the islands of Java and Bali. We selected aspects of the culture that struck us most and tried to reflect on this spirit and uniqueness in our designs. Our goal with each shoe was to evoke the breadth of feeling we had on our journey. With each design, we aimed to give the feeling of serenity and peace, calmness and vitality.
