Kavat - first in the world with organic children's shoes
One of our more popular shoe brands is Kavat. Kavat is one Swedish shoe brand which is a pioneer when it comes to manufacturing environmentally friendly children's shoes.
In 2008, Kavat was the first shoe brand in the world to offer organic children's shoes that met the strict requirements for EU Ecolabel. EU Ecolabel means that Kavat's shoes reduce the environmental impact throughout the life cycle. From raw materials and throughout the production chain, when the product is used and when it becomes waste. And this does not happen at the expense of quality or function.
Chrome and allergies when tanning
Tanning is the chemical process that makes the leather soft and durable. The standard production of tanning uses the heavy metal chromium in large quantities that can cause allergies. Unfortunately, allergies have increased in recent years and parents are trying their best to ensure that their children are kept away from unnecessary environmental toxins.
Vegetable tanning for Kavat's children's shoes
Kavat's leather uses vegetable tanning which is very gentle on the environment and children's shoes. When they use vegetable tanning, wood extracts are used. This eliminates all unnecessary toxins. Kavat's other shoes that are not marked EU Ecolabel also use leather that has been treated in this way.
