The black gladiator sandals of Nulla Nomen are made of naturally tanned leather. The sandal has a gladiator look with the three side straps on the front that go through the long vertical strap over the middel of the foot. The sandal has a metal buckle closing at the heel.
The timeless style of the sandals make them easy to combine with almost anything. Under shorts, skirts, dresses and long trousers.
The first products of Nulla Nomen, a Dutch conscious lifestyle brand of archetypes, are eco-leather sandals. The Sandals are 100% made in Greece, where the archetype sandal is originated.
The leather is made of Greek cows and is locally tanned in an ecological and organic way. Afterwards the beautiful skin is handmade into these sandals by a Greek craftsman with over 60 years of experience.
By adding new products from the same concept, Nulla Nomen wants to grow into a timeless collection of beautiful and high quality products.
One would say that leather and sustainable fashion can’t go hand-in-hand. The truth is there is a bit of a love/hate relationship between the two. Although leather by itself is a beautiful material and sustainable in the sense that it’s strong and contemporary, unfortunately the conventional leather industry is far from eco-, people- and animal friendly.
But the good news is that there is a constant development going on in making sure that fashion items made of leather become healthier for people and the planet. At Charlie+Mary we use the term ‘eco-leather’ for leather that has been treated without the use of harmful chemicals like chromium IV, PCP and AZO dyes. Instead the leather is organically tanned. This adds to a cleaner and safer tanning process and reduces the carbon footprint of this material.
Nulla Nomen leather is organically tanned without harmful chemicals. The leather is then made into these sandals, by craftsmen with more than 60 years experience, in basic colours and models to ensure you can wear them as long as they last.
