When Gandys first created the initial product, the focus was on the unique range of flip flops. Since 2012 the brothers’ sole purpose was to create clothes with purpose and meaning, that is why they initially flew out to India to source ethical materials for their first flip flop design. The first material that was used was hemp which, although is an amazingly sustainable material, did not support the feet of the Gandys customers very well. They then decided to use recycled rubber that is ethically sourced. Bet your feet never felt so good!
At Gandys, we believe that what you wear matters and ever since the beginning, we’ve always put sustainability and ethical sourcing at the forefront of what we do. We’ve already achieved so much in making the world a better place: From a section of our profits going towards our Orphans For Orphans initiative, to the kids campus’ we’ve built across the world. However, we want to show this throughout all platforms of the brand, especially in the supply chain of our products.
As a travel inspired clothing brand, we are aware that everything we do has an impact on the world and we’re on a continuous journey to improve the way we work.
