When factories tan leather, they would tan 2% more to make sure clients get the right quality at the right amount. In this situation, there will also be leathers that meet the quality but isn’t sold. In an average size tannery, 300 hides were provided daily, or around 500,000 square feet a month. A tannery produces nearly 6 million square feet yearly, which is around 215,980 pieces of leather. Each year, there will be roughly 1,720 to 2,200 pieces of leathers unsold. Therefore, La Mitra desires to live more sustainably and mindfully by reducing wastes from luxury fast-fashion industry. We upcycle these 2% extra leather that tannery produces to create sustainable products with meaningful stories. Through everything we produce, we want to share the beauty of products that are made to last and honours the natural materials that were used to make them.

The title of my collection is “Diwata’’ which Is derived from the name of fairy-like creatures in Philippine folklore that helps protect mother nature. I named it after that because my concept of entrepreneurship is an eco-friendly fashion line comprising mainly of ladies’ footwear with some bags (minaudieres) and some accessories (earrings, handcuffs). We have a huge environmental problem right now where in millions of tons of plastic wastes end up in the environment especially in oceans. This eco-friendly line aims to decrease that problem by using recycled plastics in making the shoe heels. The process starts by collecting plastic wastes, next bring those in a melting facility and then compress the melted plastics inside specially designed molds where it will be formed into shoe heels. What’s amazing about this process is depending on the way you cut, color mix and compress the plastics, you can produce different patterns and finishing for the shoe heels. Aside from this I also plan to turn the recycled plastics into thread or fibers and weave them to create the shoe uppers. I plan to mix this material with other materials such as indigenous fabric to produce intricate weave patterns similar to the traditional weaves of Asia. Sustainable eco-friendly fashion is growing because people are realizing that we are responsible to preserve the one earth we are living in. I plan to retail this collection to a more premium price because if I would sell it at the same price of fast fashion products, these products containing recycled materials will eventually end up in waste as fast as fast fashion does. This would defeat the purpose of the collection. I plan to create a product that has quality and value, something that would last for a long time.

The idea came to me when I was 15 years old on a night out with my family, when I witnessed a group of girls walking barefoot, swinging their heels' ankle straps at their fingertips with defeated looks. However, it was only a few years later and many experiences that i was pushed into doing more research. GENA is a startup footwear company that specializes in adjustable heels. Our flagship heels are every bit stylish pair of footwear but, unlike conventional heels, bring convenience, flexibility and practicality to the everyday woman. The mechanism works as follows: 1) Press on a small non-protruding button located on the side of the outsole 2) The catch will release 3) Pull the heel downwards to detach 4) Tuck the heel under the outsole There will be a click indicating that it is secured.
