Kyma is the name of the first THEMOIRé brand sneaker, created in collaboration with ACBC. Both companies share the values of environmental and social responsibility and a green shoe for Autumn-Winter 23/24 could only be born from this vision. Greek mythology is the fil rouge of the accessories brand. In fact, KYMA in Greek means “wave”, and the brand itself is linked to the mythological world: just as the Moires intertwined the threads of destiny, so THEMOIRè is committed to a more responsible future.
The new shoe was designed and developed in its sinuosity and softness to resume the shapes and comfort that have always characterised the brand’s bags and it marks their debut in the sport-casual world, after the launch of winter shoes last September. The sneaker is made with responsible materials in their visible and “invisible” components and is proposed in a version with an upper in re-nylon, derived from recycled polyester, and details made in FreeBio RePU, a “bio”-based material from the waste food industry and a water-based PU coating. The second version, on the other hand, has an upper made in FreeBio RePet, deriving from recycled post-consumer PET bottles. Both models feature a ReFoam recycled foam insole and a layer of natural cork. Finally, the sole is composed of a layer of ReEva derived from the recycling of EVA in pre-production, rubber, and a percentage of recycled husk waste from rice production. Even the packaging is responsible: made of FSC certified cardboard, it has a self-assembling structure, which excludes the use of glue.
A project, therefore, which synthesises creativity and research, protection of the environment and of the person: objectives set by the founders of THEMOIRé, Francesca Monaco and Salar Bicheranloo, and the CEO of ACBC, Gio Giacobbe, engaged in the design and production of sustainable products.
