Dali Azores Shoes are winner in the categories of Excellent Product Design and Eco Design.

The »Winner« distinction of the German Design Awards pays tribute to outstanding and commendably realised design work in the context of a specific category.

The German Design Awards are the premium award of the German Design Council. With its worldwide spectrum and international appeal, it is one of the most prestigious awards in the design landscape across all industries.

Since 2012, the German Design Awards have been identifying significant design trends, presenting them to a broad public and honouring them. Every year, extraordinary submissions in product design, communication design and architecture are honoured. The GDA set the highest standards in terms of selecting their winners: in a unique nomination process, companies whose products and communication design services demonstrably exhibit design excellence are invited to enter. Moreover, companies have the opportunity to submit projects directly and on their own initiative; these will then be reviewed by the German Design Council to verify whether they meet the required participation criteria.

Dali Azores are women’s shoes made with “Cork-a-Tex” – the new and highly technological yarn.

Marita Moreno worked with an Azorean textile crafter, Eduarda Viera, from Terceira Island who developed a unique handmade fabric, with the heritage drawings of Azorean Repasso. The result is a very delicate work and a soft and dry touch. It’s made in Portugal and numbered to a limited line of 25 pairs.

At Cork-A-Tex company, we are proud to be partners in “dressing” this extraordinary product.

Thank you Marita Moreno for using Nature in your products!

These awards just motivate us to go further and towards a better and sustainable future!
