It's no secret that we have a tire waste problem.

Every year, 1.5 billion tires are discarded!

As they're almost impossible to decompose, they're being burned as a cheap alternative to fuel or sent to landfills, where they take up valuable space and release harmful chemicals into the environment.

Indosole takes old tires that would otherwise contribute to Indonesia’s massive landfill problem, and transforms them into beautiful sandals and shoes through a production process that is organic, toxic free, and environmentally sustainable. Not only that – the process provides dignified work for many in Indonesia.

For a decade now Indosole has strived to be the environmental keepers of the future. They have successfully merged artisan skill with social impact, developing a custom shoemaking process that transforms tires to shoe soles by hand.

Through this crafted concept and forward thinking, Indosole has been able to save over 100K+ tires from landfills, but to have a mass scale environmental impact a breakthrough technology was needed.
