      Chemical City exhibition

      Chemical City exhibition

      Hello globe-trotters!

      It's been a while since we don't write in our blog, but it's been crazy since we had a baby in September at the same time that orders started to be delivered. It's been a long adventure, but now we can say that we have a proper e-commerce where you can buy your Classic KS!

      Today we'd love to share a new collaboration. A few months ago Lynn Hugill from MIMA School Art and Design in Middlesbrough offered us the opportunity to join the exhibition Chemical City as an example of sustainable fashion. We didn't think it twice as we loved the idea from day one. We are happy that students can learn from sustainable materials and products as they are future designers and it's important they are aware of plastic pollution and how sustainable and slow fashion can help to fight this problem.

      The exhibition called Chemical City started on 26th November 2021 and will be available until 24th April 2022. It travels through time explaining the importance of plastic manufacturing in the area of Tees Valley and finishes in the actual plastic issue showing sustainable alternatives like our Classic KS Coconut.

      The impact of chemical and synthetic materials on human lives and on the health of the planet has been extensive. While plastics remain an important part of our material landscape, we now know that they cause environmental harm and one section of the exhibition explores waste and toxicity. A showcase of contemporary products presents contemporary innovations in more sustainable fashion. 

      Once again, we'd like to thank all the team of MIMA School for taking us into consideration, especially Lynn Hugill.

      Hope you like this new collaboration!

      Visiting the sneakers factory!

      Visiting the sneakers factory!

      Today we want to share some news of our brand and sneakers!

      Yesterday we went to visit the sneakers factory to check how the production is going and we can conclude that we are amazed of the work they are doing. We are pretty sure you will love your Classic KS!

      Our factory is located in Elche, a city in Spain in the Valencian Community. Well-known for the thousands and thousands of palms that give to this city its characteristic green touch, it's also the shoe capital of Spain.

      We think that is important to share with you a little sneak peek of the production to understand how our sneakers are made by local experts. Step by step they take care that every single sneaker is carefully made. 

      Also we'd love to inform you that next week the production will be finished and the deliveries will start soon! Don't hesitate to get your Classic KS with the presale discount as it's coming to an end.

      Enjoy the pics!

             
       
       
       

      Hello globe-trotters!

      Hello globe-trotters!

      Welcome to KUMI Sneakers family!

      We are Alexandra and Sergio, the founders of KUMI Sneakers. We've decided to create a blog where we'd love to share all kind of stuff: sustainable tips, ecofriendly news, travels and recommendations around the world, and important information regarding our brand.

      If you are new in this community you might be asking how we started. Two years ago we've decided to start this journey and create our own brand that matches with our values. That's the reason why KUMI Sneakers is locally produced, animal friendly and sustainable.

      Starting a business during COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge and it forced us to delay the launch of our brand. As it’s been an unexpected situation, we needed to find solutions to the new challenges that this global situation brought to our society and turn them into opportunities.

      Fortunately, on March 2021, we managed to launch our Kickstarter campaign. Through this crowdfunding platform we introduced our sneakers to the world with the aim of achieving our financial goal to launch the brand. And we did it! People from all over the world trusted us and helped us to achieve our dream. We invite you to check it here.

      After the campaign, we collected all the information of the orders and we sent it to the manufacturer. At this moment, they are working to produce all the sneakers from Kickstarter and the ones that we are actually receiving in presale. As we understand that waiting to receive your sneakers is not the ideal situation, we highly appreciate the trust and support of our new customers with an exclusive discount only available during this period of presale.

      We're more than happy to have started this new journey and to share it with all of you, the committed globe-trotters. Don't miss our next posts and follow us on social media to be updated!

      Thank you,

      Alexandra & Sergio
