Before Jacto, I was a designer for industry-leading global fashion footwear companies building collections for top retailers.
During my time as a footwear designer, I grew concerned about the massive amount of waste we were creating throughout the design process. I wanted to start a company that could deliver the same level of excitement for consumers while using upcycled materials to eliminate the waste.
I met one of the spearfishermen Poull was working with at Wild Fish Direct and saw this beautiful tooth from a snapper he harvested. When I learned that the jaws, bones and skin from seafood are thrown away I was inspired to turn them into something that would start conversations and show the value of what we take from the sea.
Recycled metals reduce the need to mine new metals and align with Jacto's mission to reduce waste. My top priority is to ensure that every component and step in Jacto’s design process is ethical and sustainable.
With family and friends.
