the mission

Francisca is the founder and lead designer of BHAVA - an independent footwear brand crafting ethical, artisan-crafted shoes, never compromising compassion or comfort.

A graduate of Parsons School of Design, Francisca was an early pioneer in New York's ethical fashion movement. Today, over a decade since she founded BHAVA she continues to evolve using the latest sustainable practices and the highest quality vegan components.

BHAVA's focus on ethics, comfort, and timeless yet modern style has garnered BHAVA a loyal following of conscious consumers who value craftsmanship, premium comfort, and animal-friendly fashion.
