And they're here! We've been working on our peep-toe tassel slides in our workshops and for some special projects, but now they're ready to head out into the world! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can find them in the shop on our website - and design your own. Pick your main leather, then either match your tassels or choose a totally different colour for contrast. Plus, we've got an amazing new range of leather in stock - check out our materials page for inspiration! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by the amazing @kanahaya_alam
Fancy making some shoes from something other than leather? We've teamed up with @offset_warehouse to bring you a special ethical textile slipper-making workshop on Saturday 23rd June. We'll be at our new studio at @stmargaretsldn in Bethnal Green, helping you choose your perfect material, machine-sew your pattern, and then hand-sew your slipper together. We've only got three spots left, so if you want to come along you can book through our website!
In celebration of the amazing Millicent Fawcett statue outside Parliament, and also of the bangin new jewellery collaboration between @fawcettsociety and @tattydevine, bringing you the best of British made style with a side of women's equality (no, sorry, make that the main course!).
Do you want these peep-toe tassel slides in your life? You're in luck, because we've got four workshops this month where you can learn to design and make your own. We'll be at @artisansandaventurers this month in London and Margate running our slipper, sandal, and slide workshops - all with reclaimed leather, everything made by hand, and totally unique to you. See you there!
It's this weekend! Our studio-warming shoe-making party is our first workshop in our wonderful new home on Old Ford Street. Join us this Saturday to make your own bespoke espadrilles from reclaimed leather, enjoy local lunch, meet the team, and see our new studio. Book through our website!
There are no great things, only small things with great love.
These gorgeous storefronts belong to @artisansandadventurers, one in London and one in Margate. We like them so much, we're heading to both! We've been working Amy, Bee and the team to make some special espadrilles to their own custom designs (and the designs are awesome!) - and we're bringing our summer slipper, sandal and slide workshops to their stores so you can customise and make your own. Think tassels, paint, and leather-suede combos 👌 We'll be in London 10th and 12th June, then Margate 16th and 17th June. Catch us and our special slides then!
Well, this isn't reclaimed leather... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...it's a gorgeous ethical textile from @offset_warehouse! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're running a special collaboration shoemaking workshop with Offset and the Green Is The New Black @meetup at our new home, The Create Place. Join us to make your own ethical textile espadrilles! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Choose from a range of gorgeous fabrics that are good for you and good for the world, design your espadrilles, then machine sew your pattern and hand-sew your shoes!
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
