Visiting a campsite near bkk in my @veja V-12 in Cyprus together with super soft @aday green algiknit tee + white shorts from @fashrev_th clothes swap.

Various innovative materials have gone into the making of this V-12 : from organic cotton to Amazionian rubber and recycled plastic bottles. They also use #traceable leather that does not come from deforestation. This is my 2nd Veja shoes already and love them.

Wearing my Veja Esplar leather white to Nowhere Special exhibition by Tae Parvit at BKK CITY CITY gallery gives a cleaner and more subtle and minimalistic style of Veja, with the almost invisible V-sewn logo on the side.

What I love about this ‘Esplar’ is that the name is actually from the NGO who supports organic and family farming in Nordeste region in Brazil Veja had been working with since 2005. The more impressive thing is that the shoes are made out of leather, 100% organic cotton for laces and PET for linings. The soles’ materials are bio-sourced and recycled from agri waste such as sugar cane and rice whilst looking surprisingly brand-new - a thoughtful innovation that are great for both our style and our planet.
