The main question we asked ourselves during the relaunch of the brand was, how do we balance the need and desire to create alongside the absolute necessity to preserve our planet too?

Times are changing in the way in which we produce fashion. We need to challenge and push the boundaries to make luxurious footwear in a way that makes sense in our world and planning ahead for the future: beautiful and sustainable. No compromises.

Our zero waste approach we feel was more relevant than ever. We won’t be developing and holding onto stock so the shoes we love never end up as waste or in a landfill, the web will only fulfil a pre-order service. You ask, we produce.

Clients will receive their items within a 3 week lead time delivered straight from our factory in Milan. 

We will only be using archived and surplus materials from years of production to produce our orders. Being able to focus on this and still being able to satisfy the requests of our customers, is the main drive behind our new business model. We see this as an exciting opportunity to unleash the creative potential of fashion and our brand, and it is an opportunity we are proud to be part of.

Our materials are sourced and our products manufactured through a carefully selected network of suppliers, many of which have worked with us since the brand was founded in 2008.

Italy is our biggest sourcing country with 100% of all our manufacturing and material suppliers. All are small manufacturers and artisans who specialise in particular techniques and processes. 

The future of fashion relies on people. We ensure a positive impact for the people we depend on and those who depend on us in return. Everybody in our supply chain is treated with respect and dignity. Everybody earns a fair wage.

Each decision we make is a symbol of our commitment to defining what the future of fashion looks like.
