Kansas City, Missouri , USA., February 9, 2023 - TealHouse™, a Kansas City based footwear startup, is launching its first plant-based shoe, a major step forward in the brand's mission to deliver a Progressively Sustainable™ future and offering customers stylish leather alternatives.
The new shoe is made from cactus leather, a water-efficient and vegan material offering style without animal byproducts. After a year of development, the product is set for beta launch this summer. With growing concern about the impact of consumer products on the environment and ethical impact of consumer goods, this launch reflects the brands commitment to introduce high-quality and compassionate alternatives to the market.
"We're proud to share that our plant-based shoe is designed in Kansas City and made in Los Angeles," said Jaqui McCarthy, CEO of TealHouse™. "Not only does it offer a stylish alternative to leather shoes, it embodies our dedication to creating compassionate, empowering, and high quality products that just happen to be vegan."
The beta launch will give customers the opportunity to try the new shoe and provide feedback for future improvements. For more information about the launch, visit https://tealbottoms.com/pages/pre-order-012023 or contact Elizabeth Postlewait at [email protected]
