Amazonian Rubber

One of the main raw materials used in VEJA footwear soles is Amazonian Rubber, which Veja buys 5 times the market price directly from cooperatives formed by families of rubber tapers, ensuring the the families and area surrounding them are protected. Veja does this as part of the Fair for Life certification, providing extra funding to producers to invest in development projects such as improving the living conditions of rubber tappers and protecting the beautiful rainforest where the material is sourced.

Leather & Suede

Since its inception, Veja has been committed to traceability and chemical transparency. The bovine Chromefree leather found on Campo's is sourced and tanned in Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul), without using any hazardous or prohibited chemicals. Over the years they have developed the tanning process, particularly the use dyes. By simplifying it, the use of chemicals, water and energy are limited, and the waste water is recycled.
