One of the things we love about being a small company is that we maintain direct contact with our customers.  This gives us the distinct advantage of being able to listen to what they want and produce items accordingly.  A while back, it was brought to my attention that vegans struggle to buy good quality shoes.

Dietary vegans refrain from consuming animal products whilst ethical or environmental vegans not only follow a vegan diet, but extend the vegan philosophy into other areas of their lives, and oppose the use of animals or animal products for any purpose.

For non-vegans, in shoes, leather equals good quality.  In winter, boots with pure wool or sheepskin inners equals good quality and warmth.  But what about our vegan friends?  It goes against their belief to wear products made from animals but surely that doesn’t mean that they have to resort to cheap plastic shoes?

At Gurmuki™ we set about sourcing synthetic materials that mimic the natural products.  Our extra strengthened synthetic materials will protect your feet for years. They look and feel just like the originals and are available in a range of colours.

 

 

These boots make the ideal gift for anyone who is vegan.
