During a 2012 backpacking trip across Latin America, founder Dan Ben-Nun met local artisans making sneakers from authentic textiles. Dan immediately fell in love with the concept of using authentic textiles and working with local artisans. He launched the Inkkas brand to create shoes that bring the world together.
The Inkkas company is founded on the principles of fair trade and global philanthropy. Inkkas are crafted with respect for the environment and the people who make them. As part of the OneShoeOneTree project Inkkas plants one tree for every purchase. In partnership with TreesForTheFuture Inkkas is helping reforest the world and provide sustenance for local populations in developing countries.
