Handmade in Peru, Fortress of Inca channels a free-spirited and elegant lifestyle, while bringing the finest quality leather and other natural materials to each pair of shoes. They believe that the people who make our shoes are just as important as the people who buy them and they audit each workshop in Peru they partner with.
SUSI has made it their mission to make sustainable footwear both accessible and stylish. Because SUSI is an advocate of social responsibility, they exercises vegan practices along with mindful design and production by using sustainable materials like canvas, denim, hemp, and faux leather produced from recycled plastic bottles.

At Elizabeth Suzann, every single garment is cut, bundled, and sewn to order - in the same building that it’s designed, tested, and marketed. They call their process "slow", but say it let's them focus on the quality of their work, the quality of their team’s lives, and the quality of the experience they can offer their customers. "Respect for the people we work with, relationships, our company culture, the environment, humanity, the natural material we make our products from - it's just as important as the things we make."
