The company began in 2012 with Stephen Hawthornthwaite, an investment banker, and Roth Martin, a creative. Their goal was to create a stylish and comfortable women’s flat shoe, reducing the excess that occurs with a traditional shoe making process. There was significant delay between the founding of the company and the launch due to the complexity of making the product. He states that he drew inspiration from companies like Patagonia in making shoes using sustainable materials.
We believe beautiful, sustainable style is the way of the future. We love connecting with our customers—and seeing them engage with one another—over shared experiences, values and love of the product.
We’re inspired by women. And we’re with them every step of the way.
Remarkably designed. Responsibly manufactured.
Our bags are carefully crafted with a proprietary blend of marine plastic and Rothy’s signature thread, which is spun from single-use water bottles (45+ million and counting!).
62,793,156 plastic water bottles—and counting.
Bags by Rothy’s are knit with 100% recycled materials. We blend our signature thread—spun from water bottles—with marine plastic collected within 30 miles of coastlines and marine environments.
Rothy's signature thread - We've transformed 45+ million plastic water bottles into our signature material: flexible, durable thread.
The perfect blend - The proprietary blend of marine plastic and our signature thread results in beautiful bags unlike any other.
Knit to it - Rothy's bags (and shoes) are each 3D knit to shape-resulting in far less waste than typical manufacturing.
All in the details - Finished with thoughtful design elements like polished hardware, magnetic fasteners, and removable straps.
The total package.
Our boxes are made from 100% recycled materials and are sturdy enough to ship on their own. No box-in-box shipping around here. Plus, our boxes are recyclable, our cardboard shoe inserts are biodegradable, and the Rothy's Blue ribbon that seals each box is made from recycled materials, too.
That good ship.
