Today we are featuring Luca Chiara, an Italian inspired, vegan shoe and bag label. Founded over 100 years ago, the owner’s great great grandfather opened a shoe store in Italy, then in the US. It was reborn recently in the New York City and Hudson Valley area as an environmentally conscious and animal friendly brand.
Luca Chiara is great if you are going for a more European look. The shoes are mostly loafers and slip-ons, the bags sport thick black straps, and the accessories have hard edged architecturally inspired designs. It’s an alternative to the rugged American look that is everywhere right now.
Beyond looks, these products have some cool features. For example, the carry bags have a removable canvas insert, which is removable and washable. All the wallets have RFID protection – a layer of stainless steal that prevents identity thieves from stealing information. All products use vegan leather, water resistant nylon, cotton canvas, and water repellant acrylic coated ripstop.
