RAINBOW FUTURE

Rainbow Future is the shoe for Salvatore Ferragamo, inspired by the principles of sustainability. The model transpires from the legendary Rainbow sandal – one of the symbols of Salvatore Ferragamo, made in suede in 1938 for actress Judy Garland – and celebrates the bond between the tradition of Made in Italy and the brand's commitment to sustainable development. Presented in a limited edition of 100 pairs in the prestigious Ferragamo's Creations collection, Rainbow Future is a hand-finished platform in veritable wood, crafted in organic crocheted cotton (certified in accordance with the strict environmental and social GOTS - Global Organic Textile Standard criteria), with lining in leather finished with no carbon dioxide emission or water consumption (Layertech technology). Rainbow Future has obtained the ISO 14067 certification, whereby it is now possible to calculate the emissions due to its making and compensate them through reforestation programs, making it a “carbon neutral” shoe. To this end, Salvatore Ferragamo will be supported by Treedom, who will plant 100 orange trees in the countryside on the outskirts of Catania (Sicily), within the sustainable production of high quality products through environment-friendly processes. A code written on the accompanying certificate will inseparably link each tree to a pair of Rainbow Future – a precious symbolic gift from Salvatore Ferragamo to the clients who buy the shoe.
