Yatay Re­leases Sus­tain­able Footwear

Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was -

“Mak­ing sus­tain­abil­ity cool” is the ul­ti­mate goal of Um­berto De Marco, founder of footwear la­bel Yatay, which was of­fi­cially launched with an event hosted at Mor­timer House in the heart of Lon­don’s Fitzrovia neigh­bor­hood.

The son of En­rico De Marco, a suc­cess­ful pi­o­neer­ing en­tre­pre­neur in the eco-leather busi­ness, Um­berto De Marco is the pres­i­dent of Coronet Spa, which pro­vides an ar­ray of fash­ion and ac­ces­sories la­bels with leather­like ma­te­ri­als.

“The re­search for more sus­tain­able al­ter­na­tives has al­ways been at the core of our com­pany, and af­ter ma­tur­ing a cer­tain ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try in China and then here in Italy, I re­al­ized that the ul­ti­mate goal now is to demon­strate that ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘stylish’ are two words that can co­ex­ist,” said De Marco, ex­plain­ing the phi­los­o­phy be­hind the Yatay brand.
