Neeman’s, an Indian footwear brand, launched by brothers Taran Chhabra and Amar Preet Singh in December 2018, creates sustainable shoes using Merino wool, recycled tyres and PET bottles.
It takes more than 9,000 litres of water to make one pair of leather shoes. While on average, a family of four uses a little over 500 litres of water each day for their various uses. These statistics and numbers do not cross our minds as often as they should.
If you have more than two pairs of shoes, then you have just contributed to using more than 18,000 litres of water, which was used to get them made.
While the Indian footwear market is flooded with both domestic and international brands, not many are focussed on building a brand based on sustainability. Neeman’s is India’s first footwear brand that uses natural, renewable, recycled and biodegradable fibres in its shoes.
