Sustainable fashion is both a trend and a movement growing fast. For us, though, it has been a part of our vision and collection for many years. To keep doing what we do we have to look at many aspects, the impact on our environment not the least. Sustainability looks different for each brand and company but for us these are the key points.

Local handcrafted production
For us Portugal was the closest and best production country. Our factories follow the REACH agreement and EU law regarding working conditions, rules, and salaries. All our shoes are handcrafted by artisans in Portugal with highly skilled craftmanship behind every little detail.
We only use recycled materials in all boxes, hang tags and paper products. We also use a lot of recycled materials in the shoes, from lining to outsoles.
When it comes to upper materials we use genuine leather that is either vegetable tanned, chrome-free or heavy metal-free. Or we use our vegan upper material made from recycled polyester & recycled cotton.
We only use linings that are either chrome-free leathers, wool or warm textil made of recycled materials. The wool is always non mulesing certificated.
Our goal is that no material should be wasted and therefore you might sometimes see small spots or marks on the leather. This “non perfect”, ever so beautiful leather is natural, unique.and a proof of sustainablility.
