We produce our Wellington Boots using natural rubber for the outer, neoprene for the lining, and vegan glue to bind. Our materials are sourced for us by our factory and we are in the process of mapping all tiers of our supply chain to fully tell the story of Merry People from a design idea to your feet.
To ensure consistent quality, our boots are made from natural rubber and neoprene, a process that bears its own innate costs and benefits (much like leather). Ultimately, we believe strongly that the consistent quality, longevity, and effectiveness of these materials make them the right choices for us.
As we grow as a brand we are working towards using FSC-certified natural rubber across our range of Wellies. We are also looking into using plant-based neoprene and if that can be done in a way that is still affordable for our customers.
