Many of you remember the giveaway Inkkas sponsored on Unwrinkling this summer. I received a lot of great feedback about them and was sad I could only reward one reader with a pair, so I’m glad to announce another chance to win free shoes!
Inkkas is a brand that offers a viable alternative to those struggling with questions of ethical consumerism. The company makes high-quality sneakers featuring traditional South American textiles, and the shoes are sourced, produced, and manufactured in South America by local artisans. In addition to encouraging fair trade practices and producing 100% vegan products, Inkkas donates 10% of their proceeds to an NGO that helps protect the Amazon rainforest and its inhabitants.
Though Inkkas has received recognition everywhere from NBC News to Urban Outfitters stores (where the kicks were being sold for €99 this summer), it’s still a young group fighting to retain its integrity as an independent company. As such, the Inkkas team is using a Kickstarter campaign to gain the capital to launch their 2014 collection.
This means that from now until December 19, Inkkas fans can get discounted shoes from the original collection or gain access to the brand-new collection by backing Inkkas on Kickstarter. In other words, if you don’t win a pair through the Unwrinkling giveaway below, now is still the opportune moment to either buy some for yourself or hint to your loved ones that these sneakers belong under your tree on Christmas morning.
