The idea for Indosole was conceived on a surf trip to Bali, Indonesia in 2004. Two young Californians were struck by the environmental issues faced by Indonesians, and inspired by an unusual pair of sandals they found there. By combining these two things, they created a unique solution to the problem of pollution in Indonesia in the form of a product that was both fashionable and functional.
Repurposing is an art of transformation. Indosole learned this from their commitment to the local Balinese crafts people, the wise and resourceful artisans who taught them that waste could be reimagined, transformed into something purposeful. Through their strong relationship, they have saved thousands of tires from overflowing Indonesian landfills. And Indosole has only just started to get their hands dirty. The more tires they save means less waste, more shoes, more ideas, and an altogether healthier way of living.
To enhance every aspect of your life, Indosole uses only locally sourced and animal free materials during its transformation of waste into fashionable and functional items. It is their dream to provide you with footwear that not only eliminates waste, but also, gives it a new life. Please join them on their quest to save 1 million waste tires from Indonesian landfills.
