DIVADI is a quest to create a visionary brand that supports your body, mind and spirit. We unite all the things we love - fashion and healthy lifestyle, art and design, travel, personal growth, and care for our planet - and wrap all this into our introductory collection of vegan designer shoes made for you to walk in the direction of your dreams.
Đi và đi – "go and go" (Vietnamese)
As the name states, our message underlying all our work is to keep going. Literally and metaphorically. Our lifestyle shoes are here for you, soul travelers, as reminders to keep going forward, to keep exploring the world and yourselves. We share with you shoes that support your journey and tools to explore your inner worlds that expand your beliefs and capabilities. We support you, your spirit and our planet, and this is how we do it:
- SUPPORTING YOUR FEET Our shoes have signature reflexology insoles printed with a golden “flower of life” on the kidney 1 “bubbling springs” acupressure point, an area known to increase life force, wrapped with our signature red interiors, a color known for stimulating energy.
- SUPPORTING YOUR MIND AND SPIRIT The valuable content published on our website provides you with inspiration, theoretical information and practical tips on how to shape your most abundant life. We've just started, soon we'll launch a regular blog with articles on healthy lifestyle, travel adventures, life experiences and much more.
- SUPPORTING OUR PLANET
- 1. Our shoes are made of vegan materials with no traces of animal products. We use: natural rubber locally raised in Vietnam; Cotton, Viscose and Hemp.
- 2. Our partners at One Tree Planted have been doing a beautiful job of rejuvenating our planet. Each DIVADI item you purchase will plant a tree in return gratitude, contributing to reforestation in Asia, Africa, North and South Americas.
Our guiding beliefs is that the sole purpose in this lifetime is to live an ignited, passionate life, exploring the world, expressing inner potential, realizing our dreams and reaching personal harmony. This is magic that lights a spark, illuminating you and others. This is a chain reaction that we want to embrace the whole world with. Our shoes are the reminders to do just that – keep going and keep shining. To live passionately, helping the planet and wearing consciously created, energizing shoes along the way.
DIVADI is a product of collective dreams that started back in 2015. We’ve been actively working on the design and development with Cyrille Gulassa, whose extensive experience in the fashion and design industry for over 20 years includes collaborating with clients such as The Northface, Timberland, Converse, Gap, Clinique, Anthropologie, and who now shares her strong designs and trend forecasting talents with the team. We have partnered with Amazon for shipping and logistics in both USA and Europe, (working on Australia!) and have an exclusive deal with our fair factory in Vietnam who works with Zara, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger and Just Cavalli, that enables us to make small production runs so we can provide exciting, ever-changing pattern designs. We've been actively working on all the dozens of other details since early 2016 and are now ready to venture into the world. Our small, highly international team brought together creative minds and skilled managers from the US, Europe, and Asia all united by a deep dedication for DIVADI to succeed. DIVADI is a global citizen; born in Vietnam, kissed by California sunshine, and raised in the city of Vienna. We are always on the road, always between cultures and traditions, observing the world and absorbing universal values that matter most. We defy borders and aim at the unity of all: mind and body, people and nature, you and us.
We create products for the global nomad, urban explorer, life adventurer. Our goal is to expand our product lines in partnership with relevant companies for you fellow travelers, both women and men, introducing luggage and travel accessories, key travel apparel pieces, fragrance and paper items all designed for your life journey. We want to provide energizing, beautiful products as winking reminders to keep walking towards your dreams.
HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT US:
1. FINANCIALLY - as a backer
We have come this far in creating the concept of a new type of brand that supports you, your mind, and the planet; we have done the infrastructure of finding the fair factory, partnering with Amazon, creating the prototypes, packaging, content, graphics, photography, website, Instagram, Pinterest; we have a small dedicated team ready and racing to go, however to get to the next stage of our dreams of building not only a shoe line but a visionary company, we reach out to you, dear Kickstarter community, and ask for support in being a part of creation itself: helping finance our mission of creating a conscious company with thoughtful products made in a new kind of workplace that invests in our our team with new ways of working; supporting each other and our planet with deep dedication and love.
Your contribution will enable us to finish and ship our first production line of 6 shoes, and help finance our marketing, promoting and advertising efforts.

Risiken und Herausforderungen
We risk being a small start up shoe brand with a big mission; we risk being different by creating a new type of brand, promoting products to wear with content for the mind; bringing commercial and soulful together.
Although our overarching goal of inspiring people to live ignitedly is crazy wide, the practical sides have been taken care of and the risks reduced: the designs are done, the content has been created, the production is set up, and once we reach our goal we can start up and deliver the shoes in approximately 1 month. We are united in our desire to bring DIVADI to life and to live a long, gorgeous existence spreading a lifestyle of inspiration and sunshine.
We are a small team navigating communication and production between different time zones. Fortunately, we love what we do and our vision is much bigger than confines of time and space.
Our biggest future challenge may be the size of our team. If things proceed as we plan, there will be much to do. However, our goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to spread the word and hopefully entice world-class talent to join the journey.
We think it's well worth the risk if we create something new, something positive and beautiful to help people live more ignited, wearing conscious products and enjoying so many extras along with them. We have worked hard to put into place everything we need to make this story a success and we hope you join us in making our dreams and DIVADI a reality.
