shoes from upcycled tires
Bernard is originally from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. As our "Tire Wizard" he is the magician behind the soles that are traveling all over the world with the Brave Soles' name.
Bernard comes by his craft rightly. Through years of working with his father and brothers, he has creatively been recycling tire parts for motorbikes and other useful items. He first learned how to cut soles in Haiti as a young teenager and until we met, had been searching for a way to connect with the global market. He is now proudly doing that, day after day. He is also training our up and coming tire wizards to do their craft with as much passion and skill that he pours into each pair.
Bernard is an entrepreneurial creative at heart, always surprising us with his latest invention (he actually built a car on his front porch from upcycled parts he collected!) and we are proud of his skill and passion for helping the environment.
