From first steps to running around on their own, sustainable footwear from Kavat ensure tiny toes do it in comfort. These environmentally friendly designs are free from chemicals (good news for delicate skin) while still being durable enough to take on the playground.
Come rain or shine, Kavat footwear has your little one’s feet covered in the most eco-friendly way - other than going barefoot. With a name that means ‘courageous’ in its native Sweden, it’s fitting that this brand challenges the traditional shoemaking industry and pioneerable footwear production that's less harmful to the environment. These kids’ kicks from Kavat are created with leathers that ars sustaine free from toxic dyes or substances, yet they're still waterproof and hard-wearing. Pairs with textile uppers are made in part, if not solely, from recycled materials that are (thankfully) machine washable to make parenting that bit easier. Next time the skies are grey, team their coat with a pair of colourful boots or wellies from Kavat - perfect for jumping in puddles.
With its new methods, Kavat was accredited with creating the first eco-labelled children’s shoe. Today, more than 50 of the brand’s models are endorsed by the EU Ecolabel, so the only harmful footprints your kiddies’ shoes make will be the muddy ones on your clean kitchen floor. Sporty trainers, classic leather slip-ons and sandals are made with soft cushioned insoles and lightweight, flexible rubber outsoles with excellent grip. Elastic laces, wide-opening designs and velcro fastening all help to make shoes from Kavat simple to pull on and take off. Pastel sandals are ready for holidays by the sea when teamed with swimwear, while canvas pairs are easy to wear with jeans for an all-year-round outfit.
