Sergio Rossi has collaborated with Eco-Age, a brand consultancy specializing in sustainability, on the launch of the first “Green Carpet Collection of Luxury Accessories.” The butterfly-inspired collection of evening shoes and matching pochette is crafted with organic silk spun, dyed and woven in family-run plants in Italy. It is the first shoe collection to be awarded the Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) Brandmark, a standard for sustainable excellence. The organic silk yarn is spun, dyed and woven in Italy by Attilio Imperiali, Artefil and Ongetta, in GCC-validated plants visited by Eco-Age. The collection is adorned by lead-free Swarovski crystals. The leather is sourced in Europe and is guaranteed to be chrome-free. The wooden frame of the pochette is FSC-certified – FSC ensures that products come from well-managed forests that fulfill proper environmental criteria - with nickel-free galvanized hardware elements and lead-free brass accessories. The Green Carpet Collection is sold exclusively at the company website and in a selection of Sergio Rossi boutiques.
