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.
As part of our production chain, we build strong and trusting relationships with skilled suppliers and manufacturers around the world.
The combination of close partners, global relationships and responsible sourcing is an invaluable influence on the way we design our collections.
Leather has been an invaluable natural material in our footwear production, and it remains one of our core materials. Therefore, SHOE THE BEAR is committed to sourcing leather in a responsible and transparent manner.
