Sustainability info

Yatay is a premium brand merging quality craftsmanship with ethical resources to create exceptional footwear. Manufactured in Italy by hand, and developed to drastically reduce the impact on the ecosystem, the shoes are made from eco-friendly and recycled materials (bio-based polyols) - pairing long lasting comfort, impeccable style, with the highest respect for humans and nature.



Value Chain

The supply chain is really strong and concentrated in Italy. Raw materials are sourced almost fully in Italy.

After two years of R&D, Yatay discovered a way to use “bio-polyols” - polymers extracted from grains - as a raw material. The brand uses this materials for the upper part of the shoe as well as exahusted tires for the soles.

Production is carried out in the Marche region (Italy's 'trainer valley') as its packaging and logistics.


Company Sustainability

Yatay has an internal ethical code and provides metal bottle to the employees. It has installed the photovoltaic system in its headquarter. Furthermore the brand attends workshops to raise the awareness among its employees in terms of sustainability.


Community

Furthermore it is associated in TreeNation foundation (https://tree-nation.com/).  This collab aims to balance the carbon footprint of Yatay brand.


Customer Care
