If you live in Hawai’i, you can pretty much guarantee that you wear slippers on your feet almost every day. So why not wear ones that are soft and comfy, stylish and eco-friendly? Did you even know those existed? They do, and they are now available at a. ell atelier, in the shop and online.
Ipanema is a company based in Brazil, named after the iconic beach made famous by a song. Their slipper line is made of a patented PVC material called Medflex, which is soft and flexible, easy on the toes and feet. There is a plethora of vibrant colors and patterns, as well as solid black and browns.
Model Gisele Bundchen, a Brazil native as well as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nation’s Environmental Program, joined the Ipanema team in 2002. Bundchen stands behind the company, whose practices include:
- Using 100% recyclable PVC instead of rubber
- Recycling 99% of all waste from manufacturing, including landscaping with grey water
- Making a vegan product, no animal or animal byproducts used
Angelique has always been a staunch supporter of environmentally friendly products, so Ipanema is a perfect fit. We now have a variety of colors and styles in women’s and men’s styles. Check a few of them out here:
