It's London Craft Week 2018, what better time to celebrate the craftsmanship of our original footwear.
Where and how we manufacture our footwear is very important to us. Shoe making is a craft and we want to support this age old tradition whilst pushing the boundaries each season.
For the past two decades, Tracey Neuls has continued to design with an original and distinctive signature, an extension of her character and personal values. Tracey Neuls sketches on yellow Post-it notes, fine line architectural drawings of the shoes that can be moved around in order to curate the collections.
A little passion goes a long way. It's important to know that all toe and heel shapes seen in the collections are all originally sculpted in clay by Tracey Neuls herself, making every detail original to her brand. Mostly, Tracey uses plasticine, as the smell reminds her of being a child and the creative energy it evokes. Refusing to use ready-made, off the factory shelf components is very rare and creates atelier quality.
All of our factories have skilled crafts people who are proud of the work they do. All our leather soles are signed in ink on the soles, a testament to the hands of the maker.

London Design Festival 2021 With Tracey Neuls
A driving force in the company has been to create timeless footwear that lasts the test of time, shunning the idea of passing trends that become eventual landfill.

London Design Festival | Elpo x Tracey Neuls
For London Design Week, Tracey Neuls Coal Drops Yard Boutique is playing host to a science powered eco system that purifies and humidifies the air indoors. This past summer, we have been growing vegetables, feeding passers and it seemed apt to continue in this theme with an organic approach to improving the air we breathe - naturally. Join us as we welcome Elpo Biofilter - a smart biofiltration system with an innovative design solution, a piece of ‘furniture’ that works for you.
London Design Festival: 18-26 September
