ROMBAUT.

 

 

1 man. 2 words: Natural. Footwear. While Mats Rombaut promotes being vegan with a great sense of humor (check out his Instagram account and you will know what we are talking about!), he is very serious about modernizing our way of thinking—through innovative design.


HOW it WORKS

Mats' recipe: Strong aesthetics + humanist values, to provide a way forward for a world in need of change—“a progressive concept for a more equitable future. The underlying vision is of an ecological way of life through stark, exposed designs where materials play a fundamental part, both in style and in philosophy." as he puts it.

The special ingredient: Plant-based innovative new materials made out of stone, tree bark, natural rubber, cotton cellulose and coconut fiber. All sustainably engineered—there are no toxic or animal-derived substances involved. 

All shoes are artisanally crafted in Italy to master a the crossover between high fashion & ecological awareness to perfection.

 


 

THE FOUNDER

Belgian by birth, Parisian by choice, designer Mats Rombaut draws inspiration from all things natural, processes + biotech, and adds a splash of art and music. Having worked in menswear accessories development and production in Paris for the likes of Lanvin and Damir Doma for more than 5 years, he felt it was time to launch his namesake brand as his first solo project. 

I would like to build a factory one day that runs on solar power, that is 100% green—a place where people enjoy working.
