LOVE YOUR SHOES

We want our pieces to be loved and cherished and in your wardrobe forever. We are committed to creating pieces that last well beyond their first season and share with you some tips below for extending the life of your sandals.

LOOKING AFTER YOUR SANDALS

Our sandals are hand made from vegetable tanned leather. We carefully select each skin for its natural look so there may be variations in colour and texture. We see these variations as love marks and not as faults as they are part of the individual nature of the leather.

Vegetable tanned leather is completely natural, with no synthetic top finishes, so the surface of your sandals will change over time. Lighter colours may darken with exposure to the sun, small scratches may appear and exposure to water may create spots.The patina created by daily wear will give life to your sandals and like many things on this earth, will fade and evolve.

We are proud to use recycled, repurposed and vintage fabrics and organic linen in our collections. We waterproof these pieces before sending to you, however you may want to re-apply protector from time to time.

Trust us, your shoes will last longer if you re-sole them regularly. The rubber sole can be replaced at your local leather goods repair store.
