WHO MAKES YOUR SHOES

We are very proud of the partnership we have with our factory. It is an all female led operation plus the business has a majority female workforce, which includes 30 shoemakers who work by hand, all with full-time contracts, many of whom have been there for over 20 years.

 

HOW & WHERE

All our shoes are hand made in the same factory in Portugal. We only use byproduct leather from Portugal and Italy that is EU reach compliant (REACH). The ´Vegan´ leather we use is called BioVeg. It is an eco-friendly product line, made with recycled polyester from plastic bottles and bio polyols, obtained from non-food and GMO-free corn crops.
