Piola is by four friends (Augustin, Josh, Quentin, Antoine).
One of them (Antoine) went to Peru as a volunteer in a non-government organization in Lima. He fell in love with this country and got strong network in the association field. Peru is endowed with excellent materials such as organic cotton and wild rubber from the Amazon Rainforest. They teamed up with outstanding designers to create an independent label that would be plugged with an economic development project based in Peru.
When buying a pair, 4 €, included in the purchase price, can be donated to one of Piola’s producers to finance the construction of drying workshops dedicated to the transformation of latex rubber sheet.
You can purchase them at Rustan’s [Ayala Center and Shangri-la Plaza].
