Sustainability Green

At JORI PAPA, we aim producing creative silhouettes in the highest quality.  Based in London, we  want to be renowned for elegant creative silhouettes in beautiful colour combinations with a modern aesthetic. We as a  founders are committed and have started taking confident steps to create an eco-sustainable brand that embraces all phases of the product’s life: from design to realization, from conception to disposal.

All styles are designed with the intention to be loved,   feel unique and  to live as long as possible in our wardrobes for many seasons ahead.

Get Green Spark initiative  

We  partnered with GetGreenSpark, a non-profit organisation that works towards a reforestation project in rural India. For every pair of shoes bought from our website, we plant five trees.

Packaging and shipping 

We are committed to improving waste management in the factory and e-commerce. We are already utilizing recycled wrapping tissue for our styles and are in the process of changing the shoebox to have it fully recycled, with the confidence that our customers will appropriately discard this. At the moment our packaging is 80% recycled. We use the DHL Go Green option to offset carbon emissions.

Manufacture and materials

We produce our shoes in Italy in collaboration with  manufacturers that work  with sustainable methods and environmentally-friendly leathers. They have carried out in the past years extensive research on both material suppliers, methods of working and leather certifications. Jori works close the manufacturer to coordinate the prototyping process, research the technical aspect of material and certify the sustainability of the product on completion. We are testing eco-friendly materials in our prototypes of the next seasons. We want to avoid waste and over-production. That’s why we are committed to running a low stock on our products.

We are always looking for ways to reuse, repair, recycle and revaluate solutions and prevent damage to our ecological system. With our Italian collaborators we are creating shoes that are made with high quality materials united by eco-sustainable characteristics: recycled and recyclable, regenerated leather insoles, certified linings in biodegradable leather.

Shoe care

We always look to help our customers to enjoy our pieces for as long as possible, repairing them  and extending the product lifecycles  as much as they  can.

Try to clean them whenever possible, it will prevent the formation of stains and the degradation of materials.
Dry damp shoes with a clean, soft cloth to absorb any liquid and let them dry in room temperature.

Footwear must be protected from dust, water and sunlight.  Try not to stack them or throw them in a disordered heap, this can damage them irreversibly ruining their shape.

Do not store shoes when they are wet.  Wet shoes can become mouldy after being stored, and in this way be more likely to develop unpleasant scents.
Shoes can be repaired. You can whether repair them, or give them to a charity or sell them in a second-hand shop.
