DESIGNING FOR
THE VEERAH WARRIOR

VEERAH denotes strength, courage, and balance. These attributes shine in a champion motivated by integrity and empathy - a warrior. Veerah calls on the community of VEERAH warriors to recognize and embrace the warrior spirt within each of us, whose mission is to take up space in the world, conscientiously and compassionately - in style.

Inspired by so many great women, our warrior muse is always fierce-full and fearless. She takes bold strides, effortlessly mastering the balance between strength and femininity. This duality is woven into the fabric of our brand, embraced and upheld at every stage of production. We express this new kind of luxury as meticulous, conscientious, and cruelty-free beauty.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Today, VEERAH continues to be led by women, for women. With smart sourcing and thoughtful design behind each collection, all of their shoes are ethically made using only vegan, eco-freindly innovative materials - from apple leather to recycled plastic textile and more. Classic silhouettes are transformed with fully removable jewel-like accessories, giving versatility to each style and our customers a way to personalize and mix and match multiples looks with one pair of shoes. Designing this way creates more fashion with less of a fashion footprint.

Each day, the appreciation heard from eco-warriors around the world for designing beautiful shoes "that also happen to be vegan” fuels the team's innovation and drive to make sustainable and compassionate fashion the standard and not just the latest trend.

 

Veerah is on a mission to make designer vegan shoes you want to wear because today's warriors should never have to sacrifice personal style for a more sustainable lifestyle. You deserve both!

PURSUING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)

To contribute to the achievement of the United Nations' SDGs, a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, we have prioritized these 3 goals.

GOAL 12:
RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION
& PRODUCTION
SMART DESIGN


Through versatile and interchangeable accessories, VEERAH is able to transform a single pair of shoes into an entire collection, empowering women to maximize their fashion looks while minimizing fashion's footprint.


RESPONSIBLE MANUFACTURING

They have formed long-term partnerships with factories that pay fair wages. They increase their education by sharing industry best practices and encourage upstream facilities to reduce waste.

GOAL 14:
LIFE BELOW WATER

SUSTAINABLE SOURCING

To reduce environmental impact, Veerah avoids the use of plastic bags. Whenever possible, they opt to use recycled plastic bottles from product to packaging.

GOAL 15:
LIFE ON LAND

100% CRUELTY-FREE & VEGAN

No animals are harmed in the process of making Veerah's shoes and accessories.

DESIGN & MATERIAL INNOVATION

They continuously search and uncover revolutionary, cruelty-free and eco-conscious materials without compromising an ounce of quality or aesthetics.


MATERIALS

The global leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals each year and the chromium that is used for tanning leather is the world’s fourth-worst toxic pollutant. We are continuously researching new, natural, and sustainable materials that minimize the harm to the environment and are always cruelty-free and PVC free.
