OATies are produced in Europe, designed in the Netherlands and made with natural, biodegradable materials like flax, hemp and ecological cotton. The tree seeds are from the Pinus Pinea tree, a strong pine tree that can grow in almost all of Europe. The little shoes are sole in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany at exclusive baby- en gift shops as well as on the internet, through our own website: oatshoes.com.
“We’ve been making biodegradable shoes for a while now, but since a year or so, friends of ours are increasingly starting to have babies. Of course we wanted to be able to give those friends a cool present and we quickly though: ‘yes!’ A couple of months later, the first baby shoes were born. The response was so great that we decided to take them into production, so voilà: here are our OATies!’’
