WE ARE A BRAND OF VEGAN AND ECOLOGICAL SHOES AND ACCESSORIES

Made in Brazil.

IN 
2014
THE STARS ALIGNED

Insecta is the brainchild of two friends who had the crazy idea of transforming vintage clothing into shoes.

The first pair was created and sold quickly, and in January 2014 Insecta Shoes was born.

“We want to demystify the idea that an environmentally friendly product cannot be beautiful. Ecosexy is the term we coined to describe the union of ethics and aesthetics.
Barbara Mattivy - Co-Founder and CEO

As we kept growing, more sustainable and ambitious solutions became apparent:  we began to turn plastic bottles into fabric, recycled rubber into soles, fabric scraps into insoles, and recycled plastic into toe caps.

Today, we use materials such as recycled plastic bottles, recycled cotton, recycled rubber, upcycled vintage clothing, deadstock fabrics and production waste that would be thrown away to create brand new shoes.

IN THESE 5 YEARS OF EXISTENCE:

Insecta’s mission is to rethink the economy, seeking consumer alternatives and extending the life of what already exists.

WE WANT THE WORLD TO BLOSSOM, AND WITH COLOR COLOR AND CONSCIENCE

We aim to make our customers aware of sustainability, veganism and fair trade practices.

OUR MISSION IS TO PRODUCE
SHOES AND ACCESSORIES

with visual, social and environmental impact

OUR PRODUCTS REFLECT OUR VALUES

We believe that substance is greater than fads.
We do not sacrifice any sentient being for aesthetic purposes - nor for any other purpose.
We actively support and engage for the causes we believe in.

EVEN IN THE LESS OPTIMISTIC SCENARIOS, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE TO START THE CHANGE

We are at a critical point in time where the status quo is no longer viable. We need to rethink our behavior and make these changes. With ongoing awareness and continual inspiration we are creating positive impacts for all.
