Visit our blogs for exciting stories: NEW ATLAST Blog

We, the people behind New Atlast, love to travel the Earth exploring the diversity of our community. We grew up in Saigon, Southern Vietnam and constantly inspired by Vietnamese culture, we are impressed by these colorful handmade Tribal fabric of Ethnic minorities in Sapa, located on the Fansipan mountains-Northern Vietnam. 

We embrace the Vietnamese culture with modern Eastern Fashion into our products yet stay true to our value.

Our brand embodies the uniqueness of choice and expression.

Through colors and motifs, we want you to express yourself to it fullest. There is no barrier in creativity, which is demonstrated through our shoes.

Reasons to support us:

  • Unique tribal styles that will be noticed and even better no one else will have them!
  • You need to upgrade your shoe collection or even You want to upgrade your shoe collection.
  • Perfect gift for anyone you love, they will appreciate you thought of getting them an absolutely unique gift.
  • Your purchase and support means you have provided a child in Vietnam the opportunity to attend school.
  • We will be providing jobs to help to the ethnic minorities which means an consistent income for them.

I would also sum it up with: Your support and purchase means education and income for the tribe and you get a really cool pair of unique shoes!

Our shoes are crafted with full appreciation of the people and their environment. 

 • 100% handicraft textiles,

 • 100% naturally dyed textiles, environment is protected, lands and rivers are pure and fresh.

 • non-slip and comfortable soles take stress away from your life. 

 • long lasting shoes 

 • ethical missions regarding giving back to the people that create beautiful pieces of fabric for the world.

The soles here are not yet final version, we are working on a better design with better material.

New Atlast will be a fully functional and trade marked company based in Melbourne, Australia. We manufacture our shoes in Vietnam in order to create more jobs for the locals and avoid middle man -> reduce our prices to the most affordable but also quality is supervised at all time.

As a start-up business we need recognition and support from fans, that is why we are here to ask for your support for our first batch of order. Every single dollar will be humbly received, every feedback is humbly welcome. We are here for you and you are here with us to make story.

There will be more improvement regarding quality and styles before these shoes arriving at your hands because we believe quality must be put on top of everything else and our backers should deserve the top quality for their investment. 

Pick you colour(s), we will ask for them after the campaign!

For the textiles, we will ask you to list your 7 favorite colors from most to least, which will ensure that you are satisfied with what is received. In case we run out of your colors of choice (rarely happens), we will personally send you an email asking for your alternative choice or offer a 100% discount on an equivalent product on our website. 

Please refer to our size chart below for your sizes, they are fully converted between countries for your best convenience.

Generously give us an easy time to manage and produce our first production line because doing so means we can provide you with our best products and services. We guarantee you will get your unique New Atlast shoes right after we finish everything. We are as excited as you to show these wonderful shoes to everyone all around the world. 

All fund from the Kickstarter will go directly into funding trips to Sapa buying stocks, creating molds for our shoes, paying for our workers, creating team for future grow, introducing New Atlast shoes and Vietnam's culture to everyone globally. 

By supporting us, we forever consider you as one of the members of the New Atlast family. You will be listed on our VIP catalog, you are entitled to be the first to receive our announcement on new designs and campaigns as well as exclusive offers in the future. We hope to have you  with us all the way to our success!

Like was pointed out above, these Ethnic minorities are situated remotely in hills and separated from the modern society. There are few to no educational or learning centres, health care facilities, or good drinking water along with other amenities that make life easier. Going to school is a luxury that few of the families can afford, children start helping to earn their living at very young age. With that in mind we want to help them out, to give them a brighter future.

For every pair of shoes sold, we donate 1 day of school time to unfortunate children in the provinces of Vietnam because we truly believe that education can change lives.

Risks and challenges

We are anticipating that we will be able to ship our products in November or sooner if capable.
The only challenge we will be facing is getting the right fabric from our Hmong people. The trip can't be done in one day. We have to rent out trucks to get to the mountain and spends some weeks to gather enough quality fabric for the manufacturing, doing documentation, building mutual relationship with local community for future benefit and charity activities.
Other than that we have good experience in manufacture our shoes.
In worst case scenario, if anything happened unexpectedly you will be the first to be informed yet we all hope it never occurs.
Our New Atlast team will work hard to get the products out to our lovely backers as soon as we can.
