This week I have had the absolute pleasure of hanging out with up-and-comer, Jana Byrne as she prepares to launch her spectacularly innovative range of eco-friendly (and super stylish) women’s shoes. Jana Byrne’s ‘Separables’ have been designed to individually suit you and your changing needs, and are hand made entirely from natural materials and LEI (Indonesian eco-labeling institute) wood.
How it works is, you start by choosing a heel then match it with multiple uppers. Interchangability is easy, the press studs on the side of the heels facilitate in the versatility of upper elements, which are pulled apart and added to create new looks. This provides you with an enhanced shopping experience, as you are not only choosing the shoes but you are becoming a part of the design process every time you wear them.
The best part about these amazing shoes is that each component is totally recyclable. Unlike most other shoes on the market that use toxic materials that cannot be safely disposed of, Separables can be pulled apart and each component individually broken down. The LEI wood used in the shoes is grown in sustainable plantations in Indonesia, avoiding the destruction of natural habitats by using fair and sustainable forest management practices.
Separables aims to produce little mark on the natural environment, ensuring the preservation of our beautiful planet for future generations. Can these shoes get any better?!
