OlsenHaus is owned and created by Elizabeth Olsen. Not the Olsen Twins of Full House. Let’s just get that straight!
Since well before the creation of her pure vegan footwear venture OlsenHaus, Elizabeth Olsen has been dabbling with design with numerous other well-known companies. She has designed for Nine West, Bulga, Calvin Klein, and was once the Creative Director at Tommy Hilfiger. The mantra of OlsenHaus is “respect for animals, ecosystems, and people.” They are even backed by Rory Freedman, co-author of the #1 NY Times Bestseller Skinny Bitch, who says: “OlsenHaus shoes are unbearably cool, ridiculously comfortable, and best of all cruelty-free. I am completely obsessed.”

Although the people of OlsenHaus are conscious of the environment, the shoes born from the label are not what you might typically see worn at your local health foods store. The Spring ’09 line features splatter paint platforms, artfully-done faux lizard skin, and splashes of neons that are sure to be a hit again this spring. OlsenHaus stands apart in the fashion world; the high-end companies may be making “additional lines” that are animal or eco-friendly, but then they continue to maintain lines full of leather and fur. OlsenHaus is not down with that, so they focus on being 100% vegan in their production and even have advice links on their website for “greening up your lifestyle.” Check the website out here!
