1. About the owner

Phill knows the factories in India better than anyone we’ve ever met. He’s been working as a liaison for Australian labels for years and prides himself on having incredible relationships with some really progressive factories in India, including this one in Agra.

2. What do they specialise in?

Our Agra factory, not too far away from the Taj Mahal, specialise in high quality, leather footwear. This factory has supported us in developing a collaboration between their leather craftsmen and fair trade organisation SETU, so that our latest boot design can be adorned with intricately engraved silver heel and toe-caps hand-made by local artisan groups.

3. Why we chose them

Our Footwear Factory is one of our newest suppliers and they tick all the boxes: they produce a high quality product and are SEDEX and SAI accredited. It’s clear that they put sustainable and ethical practice at the forefront of everything they do. They power their entire factory with solar panels (saving 80 000kg of CO2 a year), they have an in-house training academy to offer employment and skills to local villagers, and they provide charitable support to local underprivileged children, hospitals and aged care facilities.
