At SHOE THE BEAR we want to create products that last from day to night, that you could wear to work and to dinner, and that could be worn season after season. Essentially, we want to create designs that are versatile enough that you can still wear in 10 years’ time. We design for real people with real lives with the highest quality in mind.
LEATHER WORKING GROUP
Our membership of the Leather Working Group allows us to work closely with our manufacturers and reduce our environmental impact in the leather industry.
To create each new design we source materials from our network of local Portuguese suppliers. When incorporating leather into a season, we do our best to ensure it is responsibly sourced and produced. This is so we know exactly where and how it is produced.
By working with the Leather Working Group we have established better practices for responsible sourcing of materials and manufacturing processes, which has led to innovative use of components, leather and textiles as well as colour, shape and texture.
