Marita Moreno wins German Design Award

Dali Azores Shoes are winner in the categories of Excellent Product Design and Eco Design.

The »Winner« distinction of the German Design Awards pays tribute to outstanding and commendably realised design work in the context of a specific category.

The German Design Awards are the premium award of the German Design Council. With its worldwide spectrum and international appeal, it is one of the most prestigious awards in the design landscape across all industries.

Since 2012, the German Design Awards have been identifying significant design trends, presenting them to a broad public and honouring them. Every year, extraordinary submissions in product design, communication design and architecture are honoured. The GDA set the highest standards in terms of selecting their winners: in a unique nomination process, companies whose products and communication design services demonstrably exhibit design excellence are invited to enter. Moreover, companies have the opportunity to submit projects directly and on their own initiative; these will then be reviewed by the German Design Council to verify whether they meet the required participation criteria.


Dali Azores are women’s shoes produced in “Cork’n Roll” white cork fabric  (from Sedacor)  and bicolour handmade weaving, made with “Cork-a-Tex” – the new and highly technological yarn of cork and cotton, awarded internationally (from Sedacor and Têxteis Penedo, the result of an innovation partnership with Citeve and Feup/Universidade do Porto).


Marita Moreno  worked with an Azorean textile crafter, Eduarda Viera, from Terceira Island who developed a unique handmade fabric, with the heritage drawings of Azorean Repasso. The result is a very delicate work and a soft and dry touch. It’s made in Portugal and numbered to a limited line of 25 pairs.


At the JPSCORKGROUP we are proud to be partners in “dressing” totally this extraordinary product.

A redouble pleasure for working with such a talented brand and designer.

Thank you Marita Moreno for using Nature in your products!


These award recognized the work done and  motivate us to go further and towards a better future with sustainable choices… made with cork!
