New luxury vegan brand Mesa have launched with a small but perfectly formed sandals collection, uniting exquisite design with animal-free materials. Supporting skilled craftsmanship, fair wages and ethical business practices are core to this Californian brand's values.

They work with a small group of artisans in Los Angeles who take enormous pride in their work, which has sometimes been handed down over generations.

Their faux suede is made with 100% recycled materials, which have been transformed into beautiful, plush and durable microsuede fabrics.

Their faux-leathers are made eco-friendly PU with a cotton base sourced from Italy, and the hand carved heels for every shoe are made from reclaimed wood.
