Walnut is a tree cultivated in Europe which has a pretty slightly grayed color and fine and regular veins. The application of a thin walnut leaf on a cotton support allows us to make shoes and accessories. This new application makes a leather and plastic-free shoe possible. The wood is robust, will age nicely with time. It is maintained and waterproof.
We work with Ligneah in Italy which produces the soft wood of which our BYRD boots are made. Their walnut material is FSC certified, which implies traceability of the entire production chain, sustainable management of the forests concerned, social and environmental respect of the sector.
