Balluta is the new footwear brand on a mission to create edgy shoes for the modern woman. Entirely designed and produced in Portugal, the brand uses traditional techniques and high-end eco-friendly materials which reflect the brand’s commitment with sustainability.
Balluta is the archaic origin of the portuguese word for oak nut – bolota. “When thinking about how we would name our brand, we wanted to make sure we chose a name with a meaning that represented our belief in sustainable practices and the effort we put into creating shoes “the better way”, refers Catarina Pedroso, designer and co-founder of Ball?ta. There was also the aim of a global name that could leverage internationalization, because the vegan fashion market is vey strong in countries like Germany, France and England.
