Sustainable Sneakers and Backpacks
Some of our shoes are made in beautiful Portugal. The region surrounding the country’s second largest city Porto is considered the center for European shoe production. Even though Asia is a huge competitor to the European production, Portugal still has a vibrant network of both shoemakers and suppliers. The focus has shifted towards a high-quality and modern production, with sustainability now being at the very core of portuguese shoemaking. This has secured an incredible amount of “shoe know-how” and an access to innovative materials. The production site for our “Made in Portugal” shoes is lead by Paolo, who ensures a very clean and appropriate work environment. In Portugal, we mainly craft sustainable shoes and sneakers with natural cork from the portuguese cork oak, and recycled canvas from Spain. Our backpacks are also made in a small firm next to our portuguese shoe production. Here, a small team of around five sewers work with a high attention to detail to create our durable backpacks. The company is certified by PETA for only implementing vegan materials.
