Who is behind Waves
WAVES is a sparkling, chic and colorful toe sandal collection from Sri Lanka, named after the beauty of Sri Lanka.
The raw materials used in the production of Waves are selected with the utmost care to leave no damage in nature. That’s why Waves is made entirely from genuine Sri Lankan natural rubber. This rubber is harvested, treated and processed into comfortable shoes.
This makes Waves one of the few shoes made from pure natural rubber in the world. Because the average toe sandal contributes to a massive component of the plastic waste that ends up in landfills and in our oceans, Waves is committed to fighting the pollution of nature that feeds us all.
Waves toe sandal capture the essence of Sri Lanka in various ways. With our farmers, harvesters, technicians and craftspeople, Waves embraces one of the most beautiful facets of Sri Lanka – its people. Our rubber is sourced from distant plantations, this employs many people from the local villages. From our smiling farmers who grow rubber with a careful combination of traditional methods and new technology, to harvesters, often from families who have been involved in the craft for several generations, to our new age technicians and designers who provide quality, fantastic aesthetics and comfort, our team brings out the best in Sri Lanka and its people. Our team at Waves is very proud to employ them, which opens up unimagined opportunities for many individuals and their families throughout the island.
