pepe&wolf was founded in 2020 with the mission to bring design into your practice or exercise while still being sustainable and highly functional. Both as individuals and as a company, we act strictly upon sustainable and ecological principles because we see no sense in doing it any other way.
As a small and independent business with no investors’ obligations, we enjoy complete freedom of always selecting natural materials and sustainability over price or profit goals.
Below you can read about the designs and production practices, as well as about materials used in our collection. We divided all our sustainability approaches into our 3 main pillars, which guide our sourcing decisions:
MATERIAL. / CREATION. / CARE.
With all the new materials coming up, it can be a little difficult to orient yourself. We prepared a short material guide for the materials used in our products.
MATERIALS MATTER. RECYCLED FLIP-FLOPS.
We are helping to clean ocean waste from African beaches. Teaming up with Ocean Sole Africa, we can offer our foam blocks made entirely from collected flip-flop soles.
MATERIALS MATTER. recycled PET.
The biggest polluter of our oceans and seas is plastic waste, so we wanted to find a more circular way to produce our mats.
MATERIALS MATTER. CORK.
In response to wine producers switching to metal or plastic cork substitutes, furniture and other products manufacturers stepped in to meet the demand for cork as a raw material. Discover why cork is one of the most sustainable materials.
MATERIALS MATTER. NATURAL RUBBER.
Natural tree rubber is often called tree-derived rubber, natural rubber, or even natural latex. It is the most eco-friendly and sustainable material with a high density, elasticity, and flexibility. As a natural product, it also has antibacterial qualities, making your home a clean space when using our mats.

CARE FOR YOUR ITEMS. CARE FOR OUR PLANET.
When speaking about sustainability, we often disregard care as the core element. Whether it is the care for the items, which extends the longevity or the care about our carbon footprint and its offset with reforestation initiatives.
In order to increase longevity of your items, we prepared a small cleaning guide for you.
We want to offset our carbon footprint and use our impact to support reforestation initiatives all around the planet. Read more about our project on Ecologi.
We are introducing a recycling program which is easy and smooth, so you don't have to think about proper recycling of your mat after years of usage.
