Each Carlotha Ray creation is handmade in Italy, in order to preserve the rich heritage of local communities.
These master artisans infuse each peace with their carefully cultivated expertise and passion, thereby elevating and perpetuating their traditional know-how.
Both in materials and manufacturing, Carlotha Ray strives to give new depth to the term ‘sustainable footwear.’
Drawing on the vast natural resources that surround us, this singular collection is created using exclusively locally-sourced, natural materials.
Carlotha Ray’s slides are composed by a percentage between 60% to 80% of natural rubber coming from a plant-based latex extraction.
Natural agents from organic waste production are used to reinforce the latex structure of the shoes.
We guarantee a process that fully respects the environment.
Furthermore, rubber production scraps are mashed up and reused in a new compound for upcoming collections.
Every color is naturally dyed using medicinal herbs, flowers, plants such as olive, pomace, artichoke, pepper, pomegranate, almond husk, walnut husk, as well as soil and vegetable carbon, also from other organic materials like mint, eggshell and rice.
Part of Carlotha Ray’s uppers are composed by a bio-satin ECOVERO and GOTS certified and a locally Italian sourced linen.
