BOHEMPIA: Sustainable, strong and comfy shoes made from Hemp
We're introducing our Spring 2018 collection of hemp, vegan and sustainable shoes. They're super comfortable, lightweight and breathable. They help keep your feet dry and smelling fresh by wicking away moisture and preventing the growth of odor-causing organisms. They're a responsible choice for people who want to minimize the impact their fashion makes on the environment.
At Bohempia, our mission is to reintroduce hemp to the world and highlight how using it can help heal our planet.
After years of working with both textile and shoes, we're combining our passions with the belief that the right way to run a company is to produce goods responsibly. We also make sure that all the people working with Bohempia get the fair and respectful treatment they deserve.
The classic court low-top sneaker from the way back is back, powered by hemp. A variety of colors to match any mood or occasion make it a likely candidate as your go-to shoe.
Inspired by SoCal surf sneakers, this sustainable slip-on is stylish in a laid-back kinda way. Who needs laces?
Famous as a boat shoe, this plimsole sneaker combines a nautical flair with casual fashion. A great match with pin rolled pants in colors to match anything.
The Holata's grown up sibling. The Orasa is a hi-top sneaker that was performance gear back when the NBA had 8-teams. Can be worn while strolling an exhibition or jumping off stages.
Get your adventure on with the Rohan. The lugged outsole provides traction and the high-top cut protects your ankles from rough terrain. Lace them up and hit it!
Great for expeditions of an urban variety, the Milek is our take on a classic boot style. Enjoy the looks of a boot with the comfort of a sneaker.
Hemp is one of the world's oldest cultivated crops; it's been grown for almost 10,000 years. For centuries our ancestors used this versatile plant to make rope, oil, paper, and food. Today hemp is also used to make plastic, building materials, medicine and, now, footwear.
For many years governments demonized and often criminalized hemp. It stopped being used and was largely forgotten. Today both attitudes and laws have changed. More and more people realize the macro and micro benefits of this super plant. We advocate for the return of hemp to mainstream use as one of humankind's most beneficial and multipurpose crops.
We're inspired by classic footwear silhouettes. From court inspired casual sneakers to rugged urban adventure boots. Timeless styles that are simple, yet refined. Shoes that can be worn with almost any outfit and on any occasion. Footwear classics that we think will become your favorite pair.
We make shoes using vulcanized construction which means they don't need glue or stitching to bond the upper to the outsole. Heat and pressure firmly fuse the upper and the outsole together.
Comfort is very important to us. To make sure you have a great experience we use a blended cork-rubber insole that provides excellent cushioning and shock absorption. A special arch cookie gives extra support.
Great shoes and comfort go hand-in-hand. We strive to offer high-quality shoes. We produce our shoes in an independent factory located in Zlin, Czech Republic, a historic shoe-making city. It was once one of Europe's largest footwear centers and the many years of shoemaking experience and tradition live on in our factory partner.
Treating people with respect is core to BOHEMPIA'S belief system. We think it's the only way to run a business. It also means a fair 'living wage' for everyone from our team members to factory employees. We cooperate with Fashion Revolution in their work to bring attention to conditions of fashion industry workers.
Risks and challenges
Although we have spent the last 12 months perfecting our product assortment and working with suppliers to ensure we can deliver our high-quality rewards on time, challenges can sometimes arise.
We have made two previous production runs to test our supply chain-they passed with flying colors- and we do not anticipate any major problems. As happens occasionally with production we can have slight delays. Our team of footwear professionals is ready to take up the challenge and we're super stoked to share BOHEMPIA shoes with you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
