Veja is a French footwear and accessories brand based in Paris. Its company founders, Sébastien Kopp and François-Ghislain Morillion, launched the company in 2005. After visiting several food and clothing factories across South America, they were inspired to combine ecological materials and economic justice to reimagine the way footwear is manufactured. Sourcing from ethical suppliers, Veja's designs are crafted from innovative materials such as recycled plastic bottles, recycled polyester, and local organic cotton. The brand is synonymous with classic, contemporary style, and its sneakers are produced in transparent, high-standard factories in Brazil to support local emerging economies.
