plastic water bottles—and counting.

Every minute, one million water bottles are sold globally. Which is why we knit our styles to shape with recycled materials like plastic water bottles. Our specialized 3D knitting technology allows us to minimize waste while maximizing our impact on the planet—and look great while doing it.

Quality craftsmanship.

Bottle to beautiful.

Our signature thread is spun from repurposed plastic water bottles and transformed into stylish, sustainable, washable must-haves.

Marine plastic.

Collected within 30 miles of coastlines and marine environments, our marine plastic adds a structured feel to our beautiful bags. 

Merino wool.

Our luxe merino wool is soft, durable and just like all of our products it’s fully machine washable.

Eco-friendly outsoles.

We have two different sustainable outsoles. One is made with eco-friendly rubber, and the other uses luxe vegan leather.

Quality craftsmanship.

Wear, wash, love, repeat.

Better packaging.

Ready, set, offset.

Meet our family.

Being sustainable means more than just using recycled materials. It also means fostering a healthy, inclusive, positive work environment for our team members around the globe.

Good news.

The art of shoemaking.

It takes a whole lot of love and care to create each pair of Rothy’s. And we really mean a lot.
