Our perennially eco-chic friends at Ekovaruhuset NY turned us onto these divinely fabulous eco-leather shoes from PJUX. Beautifully crafted in Spain in a small artisan factory, PJUX collections are the result of a Copenhagen-based designer dream team and traditional Spanish leather craftsmanship and artistry. Environmentally responsible, fair trade, and fashioned for true longevity, sustainable style really does not get any better than this. Shoes should be worn, resoled, and passed on to the next generation, in my opinion, and with genuine quality like PJUX, who would want to search any further for a lasting style investment?

Our stylish Editor in Chief, Jill Fehrenbacher, spied these cute PJUX little ankle boots when they surfaced a few weeks ago, and do not be surprised if you spy her wearing them while judging an upcoming green design or eco fashion competition. If ankle boots are not really your thing, consider PJUX’s strappy eco-leather Mary Janes with lace-ties, too! Your eco-geeky librarian self will finally feel eco-complete!

We forgot to mention that PJUX is slang for ‘shoes’ (in Swedish). Who would have guessed that a name so funky and exotic would mean something so practical? What more can we say about PJUX designs – quality and gorgeous craftsmanship at an affordable price, too. Fashion-forward sustainable style and originality for green generations to come!

PJUX eco-leather shoes are available for $295 at Ekovaruhuset NY

    Readers of this article may be interested to know about the UK based manufacturer and supplier of eco leather the same as is referred to within the article. They are called E Leather http://www.eleatherltd.com and recognise the need for an eco friendly alternative to regular leather and as such created E Leather.

    E Leather is an environmentally friendly leather that is blended with other materials and re-woven to create a fabric that mimics the look and feel of 100% leather but weighs less and reduces cutting wastage to around 5% compared to 18-40% for natural leather.

    what do you mean by eco-leather? are the animals treated differently, and how?

    how is leather eco-friendly? is this recycled from leather that already existed?
