The 6 Ws underlying New Start’s sustainability

• Upper made from 70% suede leather and 30% nylon obtained from 100% recycled PET;
• Lining in recycled PET;
• Laces in 100% organic cotton;
• Removable insole made from 80% polyurethane and 20% calfskin;

3. Who made it?
New Start is made by Alessio and his fellow artisans at the MEF srl shoe factory in Verolanuova (Brescia, Italy).
4. What are worker conditions like?
Alessio and his fellow artisans work in complete safety. Their company complies with the strictest safety standards and they have signed our Code of Ethics which guarantees both respect for the environment and for people who are part of the production process.
5. How are workers paid?
Alessio and his fellow artisans earn a minimum living wage, meaning that they earn enough to maintain a satisfactory standard of living.
6. How does Womsh plough back part of the profits to benefit society as a whole?
Womsh ploughs back 1% of its turnover and 5% of its profits into a series of projects and initiatives. We have been contributing to a Lifegate project called ImpattoZero since 2014 through which we protect forests and create new woodland, offsetting the CO2 released into the atmosphere by our business activities. We recycle used Womsh soles to make flooring for playgrounds together with Esosport as part of the “Il giardino di Betty” (“Betty's garden”) project. Last but not least, we work alongside One Tree Planted, a non-governmental organisation which works to safeguard wooded areas, by planting 800 trees each year. And 90% of the energy we use come from renewable sources.
Clean your Womsh with water and some drops of dish soap and a normal sponge or rag and let them air dry. We would generally recommend you not to put your products in the washing machine neither immerse them in water.
