ABOUT

Since 2019, the idea of Wair has been developed and we actually managed to pull it off! We are the first company in the world that is producing upcycled sneakers on scale, and we are ready to apply our knowledge about textile upcycling to other products.

In order to come closer to a waste-free fashion industry, we have put together a team of amazing sustainability nerds and designers that are working together day-in-day-out on solving the problem of textile-waste overload.
