About

To push sustainable fashion forward – you need to value quality, producers and the planet just as much as the customer.

Every Nisolo purchase provides a fair wage to our workers in Peru and protects trees in the Amazon Basin. Nisolo is a Certified B Corporation.

How We Operate

Our first mode of ethical production is through our own factory in Trujillo, Peru’s shoemaking capital and third largest city. 

Shoemaking as an artform has been passed down through generations, and we take pride in sustaining its long-held traditions. 

All of our team is Peruvian, and the lowest wage in our factory is a 3rd party verified living wage.

More than half of our producers had never previously held a stable job with a consistent salary and benefits.

As a result of their hard work, our producers, on average, are experiencing a 47% increase in earnings. 

Those who have been with us for 3+ years are experiencing a 152% earnings increase, on average.

Due to our in-house financial literacy training program, 100% of Nisolo producers now have a bank account.

Through an account, producers have access to banking services they had never had before.

All producers can solicit a salary advance for costs related to health, education, and emergencies. 

The average interest rate for a bank loan in Peru is 20% and loan sharks charge even more. Offering salary advances helps producers with an immediate need and reduces the risk of unhealthy debt.

We provide technical skills development, health, nutrition, English, physical education, and even yoga classes to our producers and their families.

We are deeply passionate about the long-term effects of our partnerships on the next generation. While half of our producers couldn’t graduate from high schools, many of their children are on track to attend college.

We partner with local universities and institutions that offer a 10% discount on their programs for our producers. 

We’re focusing on gender equality in order to provide more jobs for women in our factory. 

Additionally, we look forward to pursuing ISO 9001 and 14001 certification, and running part of our facility off of renewable energy.

Calculation Breakdown:

Each product has individual impact-based metrics that correspond to each of the five following categories.

  • Environmental Impact
  • Labor rights
  • Animal rights
  • Community impact
  • Product Composition

A product can score 20 possible points in each category for a total of 100 points. Point distribution is based on how many metrics/certifications are met for each category. For each metric:

  • If a product meets the requirement, it will positively impact its total score.
  • If a product does not meet the requirement, it will negatively impact its total score.
  • If a metric is unrelated to the product, it is factored out of the calculation and has a neutral impact on its total score.
Where You Come In:

If you have set your My FIG Values in your account settings, our base FIG Value score will be joined with your FIG Values preferences to calculate a personalized weighted score. If you care more about one impact category over another, those associated criteria will play a larger part in determining the final My FIG Values score.

Our goal is to create a scoring system that helps you better see how different products match up to the values you care about! Be sure to set up your FIG Values preferences here.
