Caboclo not only makes products with low environmental impact - their products have a real story to tell.
The brand works in a region called Cariri - the cradle of the “leather civilization” - located in the northeast of Brazil, where it helps promote regional culture and the local community. The brand started working with just one artisan to study the traditional process of making sandals, seeking to recover the original materials and make production as ecological as possible. Caboclo found a tannery that still treats leather in a chrome-free way, without toxic chemicals that have a negative impact on the environment. The brand also decided to reuse old tires, working with the side of the tire for a more comfortable and durable sole.
Together, Caboclo and the artisans have developed new products, walking a delicate line between tradition and modernity.
