VEJA Wata II low canvas black pierre men
The fabric of WATA II is made from certified organic and regenerative cotton yarns from Bergman Rivera, Peru, while the lining and laces are made from 100% organic cotton from Brazil and Peru.
From 2004 to 2022, VEJA has purchased approximately 1300 tons of organic cotton. The cotton is grown in Brazil and Peru by associations that respect people and the environment, according to the principles of fair trade.
In Brazil, the cotton is organic and agroecological, an agriculture that enriches the cultivated land by promoting crop diversity and water retention in the soil. In Peru, organic and regenerative cotton producers are accompanied in their certification and receive technical and financial support to improve their production.

Made in Brazil
Veja is the story of a crazy venture: to create simple, urban-style trainers that are environmentally-friendly and produced under fair trade conditions. Veja shoes are made either from organic cotton, cultivated by small Brazilian producers in independently-run cooperatives, and/or from vegetable-dyed leather. The rubber is natural and comes from the Amazon forest. Veja also works in direct collaboration with ecological and rehabilitation organisations. Prices are low due to minimization of marketing costs.
A nice light sneaker for Spring & Summer especially.
Wata has quite normal sizing.
