Armo

Created for the INCLUSIVO project, a fair trade and social action project, which is allowing complete live changes of people who lives in poverty.

Shoes to be transformed, customized, disassembled and flattened. A product that can be carried in handbags, suitcases, without bulk. That gives us choices, representing logistical support, since their transportation and warehousing space is infinitely smaller (1 box of traditional pair of shoes, equals 4 or more envelopes with a pair of ARMO®).

A pair of completely “light” shoes, comfortable, urban, to take life with joy and the power of surprise.

By Rodrigo Alonso for the INCLSUIVO Project, from Un Techo para Chile®

Inclusivo is a project based under fair trade policies as a key value and also a true option to eradicate extreme poverty.
Is an alliance between Un Techo para Chile® (Chilean nonprofit foundation) and Rodrigo Alonso’s Design Studio plus corporate brands, capable to support the achievement of a project that creates high quality products, from its origin in the physical realization of small microfactories, located in areas where poverty rises, until subsequent sales at retails stores or distribution channels.

Inclusivo covers projects which generates work with low costs production and minimum expertise, key factors in the development and overcoming of poverty in the short term. This is the case for these shoes, designed specifically to be a product of easy production, low investment and a major contribution in terms of logistics and production, due to its extreme simplicity and potential for storage in minimum space, low costs and minimum expertise

System designed specifically to be a product of easy production, low investment and a major contribution in terms of logistics and production, due to its extreme simplicity and potential for storage in minimum space, besides being a product that can mutate with the times and seasons, as well as trends.

For this project, microfactories were built in poor villages, where camp settlers perfectioned their work by footwear and fashion professional experts

Each piece is individually finished with the personal stamp of those who participated in the production of the shoe that you will have on your feet.
