“What leather is this product made out of?”
– many visitors at heySTARTIC booth, from year to year.
We are more than happy to receive such compliment for our waterproof leather-lookalike products, which is actually made of upcycling unused cement sacks. Yes, we believe in the power of fashion as a tool to promote green lifestyle, in a fun way. By having visitors ask that kind of question, we have the opportunities to reach them –which means more new people, beyond than those who are already environmental-conscious; Then let the conversation about green lifestyle begin! Our works are driven by one value: Exotic outside, ethical inside. This is how we are committed to provide the best products in design and function while reducing waste and empowering underprivileged communities to produce.
heySTARTIC is a social enterprise founded in 2014, as a result of a long ups-and-downs journey of social project in 2005 (more about this story in our media coverage).
