What does “Ahinsa” mean?

Ahinsa is an old Vedic expression that can be translated as “non-violence”. Our project is based on three non-violence principles:

  • care for our own health - Ahinsa shoes are made in cooperation with doctors and physiotherapists
  • care for the people who make shoes and the materials we use
  • care for our environment and animals. Ahinsa shoes are 100% vegan – they do not contain any parts from killed animals; in addition, all materials are produced in the EU with the strictest health attestations (https://www.oeko-tex.com)

What does "vegan footwear" mean?

Simply put, it is footwear made without the use of materials from slaughtered animals. Ahinsa shoes are made without violence (= Ahinsa) towards animals, our environment, or production workers.

When someone decides to become vegetarian or vegan, they usually adjust their whole life accordingly, including the wardrobe. How could I wear killed/slaughtered animals?
