As they say, it’s always summer in Manila. It automatically gives you an excuse to dress like you’re going to the beach no matter what time of the year. Having said that, who isn’t on the lookout for sandals and cute beach-friendly footwear? If you haven’t found that perfect pair to complete your island girl OOTD yet, we suggest you look up Cacatoes.
A Brazilian brand launched back in 2016, Cacatoes offer bubblegum-scented sandals made entirely out of recycled PVC. The process starts with collecting plastic from trash then eventually processing the material until it’s in powdered form. The mixture is dyed and melted into a mold to create the final product. It’s a pretty stylish way to turn trash into treasure, quite literally.
What distinctly sets Cacatoes apart is its designs that range from safe neutral-colored pairs to fun and bright glitter sandals. They also have pieces for both men and women, so no need to be frustrated with the sizing! Did we mention that you don't need to break them in? That's how comfy they are to wear.
Cacatoes is available at CabAnna Living Manila, R2 Space 214A Power Plant Mall Rockwell Center, Makati. You can also shop the brand at www.cabannaliving.com.
