About Dá Quy Vegan Shoes
Founded in 2017 by Italian designer Enrica Ramilli, Dá Quy was born out of the need for ethical fashion. They're committed to making ethical choices that meet the needs of the ever-evolving conscious consumer, while not compromising aesthetic values.
Are Dá Quy shoes intentionally vegan?Dá Quy appears to be an intentionally vegan brand, not one that uses vegan materials out of convenience, or for other reasons. They aim to create shoes that meet the needs of increasingly conscious consumers.
Are Dá Quy shoes ethically made?Yes! Dá Quy shoes are handcrafted in Italy, which means their labourers are protected by the stringent labour laws of the European Union, which also include strong health and safety regulations.
Are Dá Quy shoes eco-friendly/sustainable?Sustainability doesn't seem to be top-of-mind for the fashion-forward Dá Quy, and if it is, they don't do much in the way of communicating it. We've asked the Dá Quy team for any details they can provide us with regards to the eco-friendliness of the materials they use to make their shoes, or if they reinvest into introducing the latest and greatest of sustainable vegan leather and suede alternatives, and are currently awaiting reply.
Does Dá Quy use green shipping methods?It's unclear from their website if Dá Quy uses net-zero or negative emissions shipping partners, either domestically or internationally. We have asked them for clarification and are currently awaiting reply.
Does Dá Quy use eco-friendly packing materials?It's unclear from their website if Dá Quy uses recycled, recyclable, biodegradable, or other forms of eco-friendly and sustainable packaging. We have asked them for details regarding the materials they use for shipping, and are currently awaiting reply.
Where can I buy Dá Quy shoes?Currently, the Dá Quy collections are available on their website, and their store in Cesena, where the company HQ is based. However, they have a plan in place that aims to create a single-brand retail network in the next few years and develop distribution channels in the most important department stores and boutiques across Europe, America, Asia and the Middle East.
Do Dá Quy shoes ever go on sale?We haven't seen any sales or promotional offers advertised on their website, or on their social channels to date. If anything changes, we'll update you here.
Are Dá Quy shoes recyclable or biodegrable?It’s unclear from the information on their website what the end-of-life plan is for their shoes. We’ve asked the Dá Quy team if they have any current or future plans as to how their shoes can be diverted from the landfill once they’ve worn out, and are currently awaiting reply.
Does Dá Quy employ a slow fashion method?From their website, it's unclear which slow fashion (ethically made, long-lasting, small batch production) or circular economy principles Dá Quy follows as a brand. We have asked them for any details regarding this, and are currently awaiting reply.
Is Dá Quy a charitable brand?We have asked the Dá Quy team about any charitable initiatives they're involved with, and are currently awaiting reply, as there is no such information available on their website.
