Each color represents an element that we aim to protect

The Indosole journey has taught us a lot. At the beginning, we did not know how to make sandals, we've slowly learned how to do that and are still learning more every day. Next, the pollution problem that faces the country of Indonesia is one that fascinates us on all levels. This issue effects the health of humans, animals, and earth but also within our supply chain. As we dug deeper into our business we discovered just how toxic the manufacturing industry in Asia is and how we can help.

We’re with nature, Happy #WorldEnvironmentDay2017!

Being located in Indonesia and Northern California, we are fortunate enough to be surrounded by some of worlds most beautiful cultures and climates. With Indonesia’s booming influx of tourism, as well as an outdated awareness of waste reduction, the amount of litter and lack of reusable resources/recycling, the quick deterioration of its beauty is easily apparent.   In light of #WorldEnvironmentDay2017 theme: “Connecting people to nature”, we challenge you to find fun and exciting ways to experience and cherish the places you love. As the landscape and people of Bali has captivated us so much that we set out to save 1 million tires from burning by transforming discarded tires into soles.  So far succeeded in saving over fifty thousand tires...
