Four years from its birth, the cruelty-free shoe label Opificio V is changing its name to Nemanti Milano to celebrate the internationalisation of the brand for the Milan Fashion Week, 2017. The operation of rebranding, while keeping intact the elegance and the aesthetic workmanship typical of Made in Italy products that have until now characterised the proposed Men's and Women's collections, introduces the usage of new materials that are respectful of the environment and of animals.
The approach to the production of Nemanti Milano is given much more vivacity by a rooted culture of respect: for animals, as all the materials used are cruelty free; for the environment, thanks to the use of plant tissue, often a by-product of recycling or reuse; for tradition and the workmanship, as demonstrated by the absence of outsourcing to other countries and by the involvement of two artisanal districts from ancient and established history: the Marchigiano and that of Parabiago.
The materials used, products of careful research as ethical as it was technological, guarantee comfort, elegance and durability in the shoes: from the more traditional linen, waxed cotton and wood, to more innovative materials such as Alcantara with zero CO2 emissions and faux leather derived from the refuse of the production of grains in no food cultivations. The Spring-Summer 2018 collection will also see the use of also pellemela, a faux leather obtained from apple cores discarded by agribusiness industries, and 100% cellulose pure.
