The company uses eco-friendly and natural materials like vegetable-tanned leathers and bamboo to produce its shoes. It has introduced its fall 2010 collection of Naya footwear. Naya’s fall 2010 line offers women six key looks for the season:
Origami Rose: Pumps and ankle boots with intricate details and floral accents to add a feminine flair to your wardrobe.
Tailored Temptation: Pumps and oxfords with laces, buckles, piping and vintage-inspired details give structure to both soft and tailored looks.
Beautiful Bows: Pumps and knee-high boots paired with ruffled suede and ladylike bows add a touch of sweetness to the season’s sought-after styles.
Super Soft Suedes: Cuffed boots, shooties and flats made of soft and supple suedes lend an effortless, cool look to dress and casual wardrobes.
Rugged Resource: Boots with buckles and 100 percent shearling to beautifully enhance rugged chic looks.
Kimono Knot: Clogs and open-toe boots with sophisticated knots and sleek leather straps to create unique textures and distinctive style.
“We created Naya with the belief that style and sustainability go hand-in-hand, and that beautiful shoes can both be gentle on your feet and on the earth. Our fall line features boots for every woman’s style because we know that’s what our consumers are seeking: high-fashion hiker, casual-rustic American mid-calf, suede knee-high and versatile over-the-knee as well as peep-toe booties,” said Naya designer Kasey Gibbs.
