Welcome to the new line of shoes from Kaya's Kloset!
Thank you for looking into Kaya's Kloset Organic line of shoes. Cotton is the most pesticide-dependent crop in the world, accounting for 25% of all pesticide use. According to the USDA, in one year alone over 50 million pounds of pesticides are used on U.S. cotton fields. These pesticides deplete the soil and pollute watersheds.
The new organic line is made from unbleached organic cotton fabric with reclaimed cordory soles. Larger sizes (over 12 months) have new cotton soles with nonskid traction. They are sewn with organic cotton thread and use new elastic around the ankles. Each shoe is hand painted with a design especially drawn for Kaya's Kloset by Boston-area artist Miranda Greenhalgh. The paint is a water-based, non-toxic, pigment ink that is set for durability to washing and wear.
These shoes and slippers come in the same size range as the other collections, and can be custom ordered with any color image you'd like. Click for color chart. Black is available as well.
All shoes are made to order and will be mailed within two weeks of order date. Need them faster? See the ready to ship items available in my Etsy shop or email me to see if they are already in stock.
I'd love to work with you on a design all your own! Please email me before purchasing. All custom designs become property of Kaya's Kloset and may be used in the future for other shoes and slippers. If you want an exclusive design there is an additional fee.
