A fun, super-comfy ballet flat, constructed entirely eco-friendly and designed by Ali MacGraw for Butter Shoes.
This Velvet Stripe ballet is completely animal free, and made by skilled artisans in our family-owned factory near Florence, Italy.
It's a beautiful soft metallic fabric that makes a great neutral, and looks great with a casual pair of jeans, or even dressed up a bit.
Fashion consciousness and environmental consciousness now beautifully co-exist.
All of our luxurious Ali MacGraw for Butter Shoes are made with deep concern for the environment and the artisans who make them. They are carefully handmade in approved artisan factories and completely eco-friendly. Our mission is to make beautiful, comfortable, wearable, livable and fashionable early-friendly shoes that improve life and the planet we all share. Being earth-friendly is not on our core value, it is the core of our business. Our design studio is solar-powered, our materials are carefully sourced to be biodegradable, recycled or chemical free. Our manufacturing process is animal free and we recycle everything possible.
Our beautiful fabrics are made from recycled textiles, yarn and recycled bottles reclaimed from the Mediterranean Sea. Our soles are made from algae, recycled industrial rubber, sugar cane, rice husks, and are biodegradable. Our entire process uses eco-friendly, worker-friendly, highly sustainable materials and components, including our linings that are breathable and anti-bacterial, made from recycled materials.
