The History of Daisy Roots
Daisy Roots has been designing and manufacturing kiddies’ footwear in Northamptonshire, the heart of English shoe making, since 1995. Many of the people at Daisy Roots have joined the company from the ever-depleting shoe factories around Northampton and brought with them a wealth of experience.
As the world has becomes a smaller place and global products have become easier to obtain, UK manufacturers have found is hard to compete in the mass produced market. Handmade Daisy Roots shoes have continued to be popular because they have stayed with their original policies for quality, comfort, health and safety.
All Daisy Roots Shoes are CHROME and Formaldehyde Free
Chromium(III) sulphate (Cr2(SO4)3) is a toxic chemical commonly used as a leather preservative in the tanning process. It is often associated with cancer of the respiratory tract, skin ulcers, and renal failure.
CHROME FREE means that the special soft leather used in the making of Daisy Roots shoes does not involve the use of Chromium Sulphate. Chrome, like other chemicals, can be absorbed into the skin through direct contact or ingested by babies sucking the shoes.
Daisy Roots shoes are made from leather that exceeds the British Standard requirements to pass BS EN 71-3:1994 (Safety of toys -- Part 3: Migration of certain elements). Daisy Roots believe that they are the only baby shoe manufacturer to offer this quality standard.
Once the leather has been through the Chrome Free tanning process they then ensure that the dyes used to produce their unique range of colours are also safe and non-toxic.
Everyone is becoming more and more concerned about our global environment and long-term health of our children. By using the Chrome Free method of tanning Daisy Roots help to reduce the amount of toxic waste and at the same time provide you with environmentally friendly footwear for your child with leather that is truly biodegradable.
