Laeti is the Poesie Veneziane Sustainable Project started in 2018. The research began through the exploration of the huge world of conventional and sustainable materials used in fashion, with the goal of understanding their impact on our environment.
During our research we identified many potential sustainable raw materials, with the ability to replace the more "conventional materials". However, only a few of these materials met the necessary requirements to replace materials like polyester, polyurethane (used to cretae soles and synthetic fibres) and animal leather.
This limit in innovation showed how fundamental it is to continue the research and develpment of increasingly sustainable materials, also given the wide margin for improvement that is possible today thanks to our current technological-scientific progress.
This 5-year R&D project led to the creation of bio-based shoes, that combine the most advanced tenchologies that sustainable fashion has to offer with the best of artisanal production heritage.
