4. Classic must-haves
We love these Black Almasi Apple Skin Vegan Leather boots from cutting-edge brand Sylven New York. The clean lines and geometric stitch detailing of these sleek boots is inspired by the clean cut of a diamond; ‘Almasi’ translates to ‘diamond’ in Swahili.
Sylven focuses on bio-based, recycled, organic and biodegrabable materials. These vegan ankle boots are made from Apple Skin leather, an entirely plant based resource, and their soles are made from regenerated rubber.
The custom designed zipper pull in the shape of a diamond is handcrafted by fair trade artisans in Kenya. Proceeds from the sales of this vegan ankle boot and of all of Sylven styles made with their Kenyan hardware go directly towards new initiative The Better Scholarship – a training and education program for low income students in Kenya.
