Cariuma, manual and ethical know-how
The brand was created by two friends, lovers of skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding. After leaving their respective jobs, they set themselves the goal of offering shoes while respecting the environment, the well-being of employees and designing comfortable products in a timeless style, based on eco-responsible materials.
Cariuma conquered the US skate scene in record time. It has notably become the main partner of the media The Berrics and of the SLS (Street League Skateboarding) championships. An armada of professional skateboarders have joined the stable. The latest being the iconic Mike Vallely for which Cariuma has edited a model in his name.
Longevity and controlled consumption are the watchwords of the brand. The models have a vintage spirit, old-school aesthetics and meet current ethical standards. Shoes that can be worn in all seasons.
The quality of the materials used and their ecological origin guarantee products with an extended lifespan, the only way to consume less and better. Waste reduction All unused materials for the manufacture of a pair of shoes are recycled to be used in the production of the next pair.
The well-being of Cariuma employees and subcontractor workers places people at the center of its attention. The mental, emotional and physical well-being of its employees is a top priority for the brand and it provides them with workspaces that guarantee safety and comfort. The wages of workers working in Cariuma's subcontracting companies are on average 79% above those defined by the International Labor Organization. Cariuma also imposes a rigorous code of good conduct on its subcontractors. Audits are regularly carried out in the brand's partner factories. A commitment that has enabled Cariuma to be awarded the most serious certification in terms of the code of good conduct that exists ("WRAP GOLD CERTIFICATION").
