Italy: Best Vegan Retail

Italy: best vegan retail

Italy is the country for fashion. And if you start to see vegan retail stores opening up in Rome, then you know the market is changing. Here are two retail stores that are making their mark in the city.

Risoro Future

This store is a “must” for anyone looking for Italian design, cruelty-free footwear. This brand is a reference for people with an ethical-fashion spirit looking for completely animal-free products.

Their footwear has been produced since 1955 in Monte Urano, in the Marches region. The Marches are the homeland for Made in Italy shoes; the most famous Italian region in terms of its most stylish shoe production! 

Shoes have always been entirely designed and made in Italy, with top-quality materials and skillfully handmade by the expert hands of craftsmen from the Marches. The entire supply chain is located in the area, allowing production to benefit from the local branches: no outside processing (nor transportation!), in a zero food miles climate!

At the end of 2010, the shoe factory set up a project for eco-sustainable shoes respecting nature both in terms of materials used and of manufacturing processes, which led to the production of shoes made with vegetable materials (mostly hemp and cotton) enabling them to be classified as completely animal-free. Indeed, the name “RISORSE FUTURE” in Italian stands for “Resources” and “Future” of our Planet.

The brand is certified by VEGAN SOCIETY as it does not use any material of animal provenance. Their entire production was recognized by PETA, the international organization for the protection of our animal friends.

Risorse Future does not use any type of animal derivatives and is classified VVV+, the highest level of the Animal Free Fashion ethical rating created by the LAV (Lega Anti Vivisezione – Anti-vivisection league).

Shoes, just like and more than other products, are the result of many processing stages (more than eighty total!), so they aim to maximize the manufacturing process can only be the result of a careful reconsideration of all phases. In choosing to produce 100% vegan shoes, they made two fundamental decisions that they carry on, regarding the materials used and the production methods. They focus our attention on innovative materials that respect the environment without overlooking comfort and usefulness. Their shoes are light, durable and comfortable!

Eco Geo Store

The bio vegan shop Eco & Gea born in 2013 from an idea of Stefania and Giansimone.

The adventure begins when the desire to promote a more ethical and low environmental impact development model becomes Ethical Living, a philosophy that leads us to choose innovative products that respect health, the environment, humans and animals.

Eco & Gea is a project of personal and family research with new proposals and a careful selection of products of small Italian and foreign artisan companies, attentive to workers' rights and the impact of production chains.

This store believes that small actions generate big changes. They believe that our consumption choices tell who we are and by reading a label we can find out a lot about the products we use every day and their impact.

Thanks to innovation, technological progress, and research, today there is a productive universe dotted with small national and international companies that have decided to make a difference, erasing pollution, labor exploitation, animal testing and aiming at their supply chains. It is all about quality, recycling, ecology.

The store only chooses products from artisans or factories that certify ethical working conditions for their employees. Product quality is no more important than people's lives. They choose brands that use yarns obtained from recycled materials of different natures, all the fabrics of the clothes they choose are certified.

They respect all living things. They choose brands that use yarns obtained from recycled materials of different natures, and all the fabrics of the clothes they choose are certified.
