Our Rebirth Collection
People wear our shoes and it is important to make shoes with love and passion for shoes in mind.
Mother earth is so important to us, that’s why we call her ‘mother’ earth and yet we never treat her right. This period of lockdown taught us that when we are absent nature lives on, regrows, flourishes. We unfortunately cannot undo the damage we have done, but we can change our ways by reducing the negative impacts. In this collection Jerelyn aims at just that. She is not only inspired by the beautiful plants and flowers and the gorgeous insects that facilitate the regrowth of nature, but she also has researched to find materials that will reduce the impact our fashion habits have on mother nature.
Jerelyn has collaborated with a research and development company who works with tanneries that create leather that is sustainable, they call their project 3R which is reduce, reuse and recycle. Don’t be fooled by the word recycle, recycle in this case is not recycled leather, but recycled materials that are used by tanneries to create the finished leather product, for example water. Water is recycled therefore, reusing water to reduce the impact on the environment by reducing Co2 emissions, reducing consumption of energy, water, and waste materials.

Aside from using sustainably we also make sure to reduce waste as much as possible where possible by ordering only material that is required for production therefore working with suppliers that have no specific minimum quantities.
The last used for production of our beautiful designs are sourced from old factories in the Lombardy area. This means no new lasts are produced thus reducing the production and use of plastic. The resubmission of these lasts into production more than once reduces the waste that would be otherwise.
Every shoe comes in their own cardboard box that is plastic free, with dust bags that are 100% cotton.
We at Jerelyn Creado are trying to reduce our carbon footprint as much as we can and we therefore ask all our customers to measure their feet before their purchase, this helps us get the most accurate size thus reducing returns.
