Just in case you need a visual reminder 😊
Want to get your wallet-making on? Join us this Saturday in the @blue_patch Sustainable Department Store on Bethnal Green Road at 2:30pm to cut, punch and stitch your own. We'll also be at the @artisanandfox Oasis Pop-up Shop on Wednesday 19th at 7pm. We'll bring a range of beautiful leathers, all reclaimed from industry offcuts, and every workshop provides flexible, supported work at the London Living Wage for our teachers. Come along!
* Last Christmas order dates! * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We've been so wonderfully overwhelmed this past few weeks with all your Christmas orders - thank you!

Here are your last order dates: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Outside of UK shipping: Tuesday 11th December (today!) UK shipping: Tuesday 18th December e-mailed Gift Cards: Monday 24th December
Though if your feet have great shoes on them, you're allowed to sneak a peak 😉
Our second anniversary sale is over... and we're sad to see it go! If you missed it, we don't want you to miss out on having a little Juta in your holiday season, so we're running two giveaways in December. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This week, we're giving away a pair of our new vegan faux fur slippers. Handmade in London from reclaimed materials, they are the softed and cosiest slippers we've ever slid our feet into. Each pair provides hours of work at the London Living Wage for our talented graduates of our employability skills scheme, and will keep your toes (or someone else's, if you're feeling generous!) warm all winter long. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For a chance to win, we're asking you to do the typical contest stuff - like this post, make sure you're following us, and tag a friend in a comment. We'll choose a winner on Friday evening, so you've got until then to get your name in. Then we'll make up the shoes next week and ship them out to you!
We get a lot of people asking us about our packaging, so here's a photo to show you. We wrap our shoes up in recycled paper, tie it up with a cotton ribbon printed in the UK by @gblabels, and tuck in a note printed on recycled paper, signed by the maker. We then pop this into a recycled paper bag and mail it to you. If you're in East London, you can also pick up your shoes from our studio if you want to reduce transport - just pop a note in your order comments and we'll have them here for you. We know we said 'recycled' about 20 times in this post, but all the paper is also recyclable!
As we dive deep into Christmas buying-and-gifting season, just a little reminder: The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters.
A lovely corner of our studio (and yes, that's a plant in a wok!). We love the kitchen in The Create Place, which is filled with light even in the winter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We also love this pair of shoes, which we made and sent out last week to the USA. The customer got in touch with a photograph of our shoes that she really liked. We'd run out of that particular suede, but we thought we could find something similar in our studio. Our expert maker Ruhela searched through our collection of reclaimed leather and found one that was almost exactly the same - and voila, this beautiful pair of shoes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We love working with you to design and make your ideal shoes, so if there's something you've had in mind, just get in touch!
