Impronte di pace: peace steps

Peace Steps is probably not the best translation of “Impronte di pace“, it would be better to talk about footprints or footmarks, but at the end of the day the meaning would be there: going somewhere towards peace. The idea behind this project is very much rooted in what really Fair Trade means. Peace can be reached trough work, from this assumption a small Italian NGO’s, Vento di Terra and a Fair Trade Cooperative, Nazca, started a shoemaking workshops in Palestine two refugee settlements near Jerusalem and Ramallah. Their presence at Tutta un Altra Festa, yearly Fair Trade event in Milan, is always a positive sign for the entire italian Fair Trade scenario, showing that new and challenging initiatives are possible and properly welcome by World Shops and costumers.

The production is arrived now to its second season and thanks to an Italian shoe expert, started to mode a little further, introducing new colours beside the leather ones and new products.

The potential and the capacity this project are promising, now it is time to consolidate business channels and find new markets to keep production going, introducing a winter collection and implementing always new innovative products.

You can find Impronte di Pace sandals and accessories in most of Italian Fair Trade Shops and online
