Unstitched Utilities have created a line of sustainable forward-thinking sneakers using Dupont’s Tyvek paper and vegan dyes and glues. Tyvek is a  flashspun high-density polyethylene fiber that is water resistant, highly breathable, extremely durable and very lightweight. Tyvek is vegan-friendly and sustainable, as it is a recyclable material as well.
