"Our shoes are made in a small factory near to the city of Porto in Portugal. A country (which we're proud to say) derives over 70% of its energy from renewable sources, the highest in Europe. They employ 70 local workers and are committed to high standards of ethical manufacturing. The factory has a strict non-toxic policy and they recycle nearly all their waste products, including fabric off-cuts and water.

  • production is based in Portugal
  • reasonable work shifts
  • no child or forced labor
  • non-discriminatory work environments
  • safe and hygienic work environments
  • controlled employment relationship

We use Environmentally Conscious Materials
