These jelly shoes made from hemp and recycled plastic are produced by Humeau-Beaupreau, a family company founded in 1905. It makes them in its factory located in Beaupreau, in the Maine-et-Loire region, between Nantes and Angers.
The hemp and recycled plastic used for these shoes also comes from French producers, located near to the Beaupreau factory.
Hemp gives the shoes an aged, irregular appearance. It is also a very ecological material as it needs little water to grow, is cultivated without pesticides and grows unusually fast. The plastic used is recycled, and is endlessly recyclable.
Through this collection, agnès b. aims to offer shoes which are not only entirely made in France, but also ecological, sustainable and with a reduced carbon footprint.

The Tara Ocean Foundation, first recognised public interest foundation in France dedicated to the world’s oceans, is leading a scientific revolution: The Foundation has developed an open, innovative Ocean science that will enable us to predict, anticipate and better manage tomorrow’s climate risks.
We use high-level scientific expertise to raise awareness and educate young people, mobilise policy makers at the highest level, and enable emerging and developing countries to access the latest knowledge about the Ocean. A veritable floating laboratory, the research schooner Tara has already traveled more than 400,000 kilometres, making stopovers in more than 60 countries during 4 major expeditions, carried out in collaboration with international laboratories of excellence (CNRS, CEA, PSL, EMBL, MIT , NASA, and others).
The Tara Ocean Foundation is a Special Observer at the UN and actively participates in the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda. We want to make the ocean a shared responsibility.
