Philosophy

Nae was born under the assumption of no animal exploitation and focus not only the natural and ecological materials, but also the design, style and quality that are already recognized in Portuguese footwear. All the products Nae manufacture are ethical and designed for the consumer and their daily comfort.

Strategy

Nae's strategy is to create modern products that designed for everyday use. The products are manufactured only in certified factories of Portugal, where they respect their employees and ain't using any product of animal origin or that damages the environment. Moreover, Nae work with natural materials such as cork and pineapple, recycled materials as airbag and PET - plastic bottles, and synthetic materials as ecological microfibers.

Recycled Airbag

The recycled airbag is the latest material used by us in the manufacture of footwear. This production comes with the intention of giving a new life to a material that is no longer useful, reusing the nylon present in the airbags and give them a new purpose.

Nae is the first brand in the world to design a shoe through the recycling of airbags. Find one of our airbag models here.

 

Pineapple leaf fibers

Pineapple leaf fibers are natural and a very interesting material to work with because it is not only water resistant but also very warm. If you add an eco-cream, then you will get a very resistant model to wear all winter! This fabric is produced by an English company that works with local farmers in Philippines. The pineapple production is not specifically to make shoes, so Nae only use the pineapple leaves from pineapple that is consumed. The production is made by these local farmers in Philippines where the human rights and the labor laws are respected. Nae contribute for waste recycling and Nae help these communities with a sale price percentage for each meter Nae buy. Pineapple leaves are waterproof, breathable and anti-allergic.

PET

Our PET shoes are made of recycled plastic bottles and recycled tyres. Producing shoes with these materials minimize the environmental impact. This is not a water resistant material but it's very warm and really strong. Really, really strong. Check out our models here.

 

Microfibers

Here they are the microfibers! The oldest material used by us and that never disappoints. In general, they are made of nylon, cotton and polyester. Nae only work with ecological microfibers with OEKO-TEX certified that guarantees that don't exist any waste of water or energy in its production. Basically, they are lighter and more ecological with minimal waste. It's the most versatil material to work because it's water resistant and it's fresh. You can wear all year! Microfibers are as tough as leather and less prejudicial to the environment. Find some models here.

Cork

Cork is the most portuguese material ever! Make sense to us to use it, right? It's not only because it's portuguese but also because is 100% natural, fresh and water resistant. Nae only work with cork that is extracted from protected cork oaks, respecting the normal tree development without harming the normal of the species and without damaging the tree.
