KINDER TO OUR PLANET
texture of suede, feel and durability of traditional leather. Lightweight, skin-friendly, anti-bacterial and water resistant; cork inspired us to bring you EVOLVE, our collection of reversible, broad + skinny belts.
Bold, Grace, Fun, Kind and Calm -- make EVOLVE the voice of your personality and the ever-evolving you.
While on the lookout for a fashionable yet eco-friendly leather alternative, we came across cork, an incredible material we’d like to call the ‘fabric of the future’. Extracted from the outer bark without actually cutting the cork oak tree, the harvest is made once every 9 to 14 years on trees older than 25 years.
What makes the process fascinating? It is the tree’s ability to absorb up to 5x more CO2 than usual while regenerating its new bark, resulting in reduced carbon footprint. An ideal trade-off? We think so too.
ALL THINGS FINE
the EVOLVE Collection is not just sustainable, but also regenerative. Devoid of PU and PVC materials unlike other vegan leathers, cork claims the throne for being 100% recyclable and renewable. Its inherent features make it stain proof, scratch resistant, easy to clean and simple to sanitise with immense elasticity, ideal for belts.
There’s more to cork, but we’d like you to experience it first-hand!
HANDMADE TO PERFECTION
we were particularly keen on cork to create reversible belts that would seamlessly pair with our vibrant capes. Of course, they had to be sizeless, timeless and versatile like all our creations. In collaboration with Mumbai-based Studio Beej, experts in all things cork, we designed a series of broad + skinny reversible belts, designed to be worn up to 6 ways, in distinctive colours and textures.
Each EVOLVE Belt is created from certified cork and handmade by a single artisan under the guidance of master craftsman Arif Khan.
Crafted with precision ready for you to touch, feel and experience.
STAMPED AND CERTIFIED
You can trust the premium quality of the cork leather when you have an approval from a globally recognised certification system like the ForestStewardship Council (FSC). Moreover, the cork we use is APCOR certified so you can be confident of the fineness of our collection.
BE YOUR OWN MUSE
When you get a broad + skinny detachable belt, what do you do? We’d say go-all-out and pair it together to dress up or wear it independently to dress down as per your mood for the day. After all, as designer Kenzo Takada rightly said,“Fashion is like eating, you shouldn't stick to the same menu”. We also feel that one shouldn’t have to buy 4 belts solely for the colours when you can get one reversible belt that can be worn in 6 different ways! Remember, more with less?The EVOLVE Belts have different shades infused on either side, offering multipurpose wearing styles designed in similar hues matching our capes. When we say multifunctional, we mean it.
