Ethical Fashion Product of the Year

There is a footwear revolution going on in Bermondsey, south London, as Terra Plana, run by Galahad Clark, scion of the Clark shoe family, bids to develop the 'best-feeling designer shoe brand in the world'. For 'best-feeling' read the most innovative, sustainable but fashionable shoe, and it was these values that had our judges hooked in one of the most closely fought and hotly debated categories.
Terra Plana's range of men's and women's shoes encompasses three brands: Terra Plana, Worn Again and United Nude. These were judged to have a very clear sustainable direction, and to be heading towards the company goal of 'total sustainability' by 2010.
