Brand: Thies

Thies is a shoe brand that was founded in 1856. They make footwear from innovative and sustainable materials.

Eco-friendly: The sneakers' upper, lining and insole are made of 'olive leather', tanned from the vegetable extract of olive tree leaves. The slippers and sandals are made from upcycled milk wool. Milk wool is a synthetic fiber from casein powder in milk. The result is similar chemically and in properties to wool, but it is a bit different.

Fair and locally produced: the olive leather for the sneakers is made locally in Germany, where Thies also produces. The collections are therefore made close to home, in Europe!

Vegan: The Thies eco-line on Project Cece is suitable for vegans, because olive leather is used here as an alternative to animal leather.
