Rediscover the world of things.
Cave is the way of thinking.
It allows us to create original products
using existing tools and machinery.
It is the way to take care of our environment.
In one factory there are forgotten tools, equipment and manufacturing processes
that enable us to create new products with low ecological input.
Production without pre-production
There are no new tools or production lines needed.
Show what we think
by what we create.
Our world is filled with products that we don’t need
but nevertheless we are still producing more and more.
This is causing problems in society and nature.
The start of new production requires a lot of energy,
material and time. Lots of items are transported from various parts
of the world and ecological footprint is growing. There are fully equipped
factories all around the world so why create new equipment?
Let´s use what we have In innovative way.
It is time to start thinking about design differently.
Our first step
the most important one
Cave is the way of thinking
We are looking for innovation in design
not in production equipment.
We are using local materials.
Because of that our ecological and moral input is minimal.
We want to show big brands that there is a way to make
production better in sustainable way by creating a clever design.
Eva was born in Zlin in Czech Republic.
Zlin is the town where Tomas Bata built in those times the biggest shoe factory in Europe.
Eva’s grandparents worked in this factory their
whole lives. She started studying design from tender age of 15. Out of all different sides of
design, she found passion in shoes. She learned about their production when she worked
as an intern in one of the companies within the Bata factory.
Later when Eva started
studying and traveling abroad, with her experience from production in mind she realised
the stark contrast between the senseless global movement of goods and the forgotten
local production possibilities.
She decided to change this.
Today she combines unusual design and traditional technology to create great quality shoes
which challenge the view on global shoe production.
