Each pair of our shoes and sandals supports our
clean drinking water projects.

We believe in crafting beautiful and innovative footwear.

We believe in charting our own path.

We believe access to clean drinking water should be a fundamental right, not a privilege.

    it all started here in the "Shaolin Temple" | we launched Freewaters in 2011 from this art studio nestled in the mountains between Santa Cruz and Silicon Valley | a perfect refuge to design and pull inspiration from, it was here that the concept and name of Freewaters was born | occasionally, like today, we circle back here to draw fresh inspiration from this humble and meditative place where it all began

    water captured off the roof is fed into this concrete cistern for clean and safe storage. having local access to clean water allows local women and children to spend their time more productively in school or farming rather than making long hikes along rocky trails to collect a bucket of water from streams that are often 1-2 hours away - streams that are often contaminated by human and livestock activity and put the locals at risk of cholera or other water borne diseases | #cleanwaterheals | shot on 35mm film @lomography Mini Diana camera #nofilters
