We reckon Einstein would have enjoyed making shoes with us!
You're right, it's not the right weather for summer sandals. But hear us out! We made these special edition black leather crossover sandals last summer for @birdsonglondon, another London-based social enterprise. Birdsong's mission is to create clothes that connect women from worker to wearer, promising no sweatshops and no photoshops. And today we wanted to celebrate these sandals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're beyond honoured to have been nominated for the @socialenterpriseuk Consumer Facing Social Enterprise of the Year Award, alongside some true legends of the social enterprise world. and some of our close friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You'll see our @sancroftint podcast fellows @toastale and @_thesoapco there, as well as ethical coffee pioneers @cafedirect and the awesome @frombabieswithlove. And of course, our friends and co-sandal-makers Birdsong. We feel so lucky to be part of an industry where everyone supports each other, chooses to collaborate instead of competing, and celebrates everyone else's successes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We honestly can't tell you who to vote for out of this amazing bunch, but please do read about the shortlist in the @bigissueuk and enjoy hearing about the awesome work all these social enterprises are doing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ https://www.bigissue.com/latest/seuk-awards-2018-vote-for-the-consumer-facing-social-enterprise-of-the-year
Today and tomorrow are your last chances to catch the @ctrlchange popup shop in Old Street Station. It's an amazing space full of gorgeous jewellery, coffee, accessories, cards, cups - and yes, wine! - all of which are good for you while doing good. There's also the opportunity to join them and @magicorganicapothecary tonight to make your own blended bath salts, or to come in tomorrow to make your own reclaimed leather espadrilles with us. Pop by during your lunchtime if you live near, swing through after work (open late), or drop in on the weekend. Big love to Indie from @unfoldchange for being the mastermind behind this beautiful space!
Simple things can be beautiful. Use your creativity to make something awesome!

What's this beautiful corner of green and gold in Mayfair? While it's gorgeous, it's the least amazing spot you'll see at @theconduitlondon, the home of The @Maiyet Collective, the largest collection of sustainable and social impact brands in London. We were at the opening this morning and it's amazing - our friends @aerendeshop and @birdsonglondon are there with their beautiful ceramics and wool sweaters, and we'll be there on Saturday teaching you how to make your own sustainable leather sandals and slides. For an invite to the shop, head to www.maiyet.com, and if you want to come to the workshop, the link's in our bio.
