About Cri De Coeur:
Never before has being so eco-friendly been so stylish. Thanks to Cri de Coeur, a line of top-quality vegan shoes, ladies around the globe can create eco-luxe looks in no time flat. Pairing deftly with everything from cocktail dresses to skinny jeans, Cri de Coeur accessories embody effortless chic.
Cri de Coeur is a French expression that translates literally to “cry from the heart.” To us, it symbolizes our heartfelt desire to change the face of the fashion footwear and accessory markets by providing stylish, contemporary products that are ethically produced from start to finish. The choices we make as designers, manufacturers and consumers can have an enormous impact on the lives of animals, humans and our environment, while not compromising on style. Our mission is to help ethical fashion saturate the future market of retail by exciting a dialogue that will demand that these ideals be met industry-wide – because the planet and its inhabitants depend on it.
Cri de Coeur is a completely animal free company that is committed to educating people about a vegan lifestyle. There is a shift in attitude about how we define “style”, with a growing awareness in the increase of pollution, deforestation, global warming, and resource depletion that is rapidly destroying the planet. The simplest way to help reverse these devastating statistics is by adopting a vegan lifestyle. This goes beyond the dinner plate. Taking personal responsibility for not only what goes inside our bodies but for what we put on the outside of our bodies is crucial to our survival. This is how we hope to help redefine what it means to have “style”.
This shift in attitude is palpable, with a growing awareness across the globe. Please join Cri de Coeur in helping to make a difference.
