At the end of the 90s, American Chris Anderson, a vegan designer with a nomadic spirit, had a revelation. The world was increasing the consumption of plastic, generating a lot of new waste. Faced with this problem, Chris decided to become actively involved in the ecology of our planet, designing eco-sustainable sandals. To make them, he recovered plastic material deposited in seas and rivers, transformed it into polypropylene rope and created the famous Nomadic State of Mind sandals, already present all over the world.
Chris’s concerns about building a better world led him to Nicaragua, specifically to a community with few resources. There he established the workshop to make his sandals, establishing a commercial system that was supportive and alternative to the conventional one. In this way, he contributed to the development of that community, fighting poverty and manufacturing Fair Trade sandals.
Nomadic State of Mind eco-sustainable sandals are made in an artisan workshop located in a former coffee factory in Nicaragua. They are made solely and exclusively by hand, one by one, following a meticulous manufacturing process that makes them so special.
