Beyond Skin’s diffusion shoe collection
Beyond Skin has created a project with the funding platform, Kickstarter, with the aim of putting into production a new diffusion line of vegan shoes. This collection will offer a selection of stylish and comfy ladies vegan shoes to sit alongside their current luxury ’boutique’ collection.
Beyond Skin is a 10 year old, self-funded, indie, UK vegan footwear label dedicated to designing cruelty-free, luxury shoes for stylish, discerning ladies. They hope to introduce more affordable, stylish vegan footwear to the world.
This new range will launch with 10 styles, which have been designed for everyday wear at a more affordable price-point without sacrificing their signature, vintage inspired aesthetic and will (hopefully with your help ☺) be available on their online store and will retail from £69 www.beyondskin.co.uk.
Like many small brands, they have had their fair share of challenges from the turbulent economic climate to manufacturing mishaps combined with the impact of their strict policy of sourcing ethically within the EU.
This has all contributed to rather slow growth but they have managed to survive these obstacles thanks to their incredibly loyal customers as well as the veggie and vegan community who have nurtured their existence.
One of their most recent challenge was the closing down of their main factory taking with it the vast majority of their Spring ’13 luxury ‘boutique’ line. This sadly left them considerably short of the funding needed to create the new diffusion line leading them to implement this Kickstarter project.
Beyond Skin will be ready to place the first order for this collection, with a manufacturer in Spain, as soon as they reach their minimum target of £20,000.
Beyond Skin passionately want to demonstrate that vegan labels can be stylish, high quality and gorgeous. This project will not only support them in their growth but hopefully assist in gradually transforming the way that an entire industry sources and implements its materials and working practices.
Those who are able to support with a pledge can choose from a varied selection of ‘rewards’; from £5 upwards starting from a fair trade branded shopper bag, all the way up to designing their own perfect pair of shoes!
