For the last 25 years EMU Australia has been inspired by innovating with sustainable and natural materials, to create quality footwear that lasts. Starting out with a simple idea, that nature is the best inventor and they’re just following her lead. Australian Merino wool, leather and Australian sheepskin are world renowned for their super-natural qualities including next-to-skin softness, as well as being renewable, biodegradable and 100% natural. Just as nature evolves, so do EMU Australia.
Their focus has always been on using the very best, natural materials that, unlike man-made fibres, are recyclable, reusable and biodegradable. Striving for sustainable consumption patterns by producing quality footwear that is enduring rather than fast fashion.
Their story is an Ever-Natural story. Sustainability has been at the core of EMU Australia since the very beginning. They believe that creating quality products that last, means that they allow people to make a more sustainable choice when they invest in their footwear.
The natural wool, sheepskin and leather materials used in their products are part of the Earth’s natural cycle – they do not accumulate in the environment, instead they break down naturally into harmless compounds. Australian Merino wool is a key material used across the collection; wool fibres biodegrade in just 6 months unlike synthetic fibres which can take up to 40 years to biodegrade.
EMU invests heavily in innovation and design – embracing natural materials, craftmanship and quality, to create world-leading footwear. EMU Australia take the extra time in design and materials sourcing to ensure their products last. Once the design process reaches prototype, they conduct comprehensive testing to ensure every style meets the EMU standard of excellence and quality. Their ability to innovate, push boundaries and harness all natural materials results in enduring comfort and quality you can trust.
