Our Sustainability Commitment | Tracey Neuls

THE FACTORY
All Tracey Neuls shoes and accessories are handcrafted by small family-run factories in Portugal. We work with one factory for leather soles and one for rubber sole production, no middlemen involved.

Like different types of restaurants, their techniques and ingredients are different: we visit them personally and meet the artisanal makers who create our products from scratch. The way Tracey designs is very rare and our production is small, which ensures complete transparency.

Tracey Neuls is a premium British shoe designer committed to slow fashion and sustainability.

VISION & EXPERTISE
Tracey Neuls designs shoes that are unique both conceptually and materially. She personally discusses her vision with the artisanal makers to ensure they have a first-hand understanding of her designs.

When we call these factories 'family-run', we truly mean it: we have met sisters, fathers, aunties and granddads chatting by the sewing machines and shoe glue pots. They're incredibly experienced and we value their craftsmanship that allows us to create the most demanding designs, such as the iconic BIGTOP.

ETHICAL LEATHERS
The only leathers we agree to use are those coming from small family-run tanneries in Italy, selected for their ethos and ethical treatment of animals. As sad as it may sound, cruelty against animals is visible on their skin: using only whole cowhides with no scars is one of the ways we ensure that the animal was treated humanely. 

We use natural vegetable dyes to tan our leathers by hand, so there is no industrial toxic waste involved. All production happens in-house with no outsourced labour. Nothing is mass-produced: these leathers are incomparable to those available on the high street.

Sustainability may not be the most profitable way, but it is the only way we know.
