We are so proud of this eco-warrior who has actually been a part of the Kind Karma journey from day one. We first met Christal at the Kind Karma launch event and back then, she was running an amazing online boutique called "The Little Shop of Courage". But after an incredible moment of inspiration and an ingenious idea, she transitioned into creating Brave Soles, a social enterprise that is creating significant change in the sustainable fashion movement. This is her story.
In early 2017, the idea struck for the first time. Why not use tires for soles on beautiful hand made shoes - and create a way to help the most vulnerable people in the process?
Brave Soles recognizes that finding beautiful fashion that's kind to both people AND planet can be difficult and expensive.
So they're helping to create a better future for both - at a fair price.
FAVOURITE PRODUCTS SO FAR?
By far, our best selling sandals are the Jasmine, the Avarca and the Ophelias. I think it’s because they each represent different personalities and purposes. The Jasmine is a pretty, feminine sandal that goes from day to night, the Avarca is a classic lifestyle shoe that is going to go with you everywhere and the Ophelias are simple, well made slides that are perfect for summer days.
Our AirCraft Collection is something we are excited about these days, as well. We use reclaimed leather plane seat covers from Voyageur Airways and Jazz Aviation. We incorporate all the materials from the plane seats and the result is simple, classic accessories that will continue to travel with you for many, many years into the future.
Thank you so much Christal for being such an inspiration in the world and for your continued efforts in making our planet a safe haven for all of us!
