Ethical working conditions

We believe that the best quality shoes begin with respect for people and the environment. Our identity and reputation is based on strong values and a clear mission. With "create happiness in everyday walks," we are looking for the purest and fairest way to realize our product in every area of business. What we mean here is not only good comfort and the smallest possible ecological footprint, but also an honest and good relationship with our suppliers and employees. In our opinion, this creates "happiness" in all aspects.


Our shoes are not produced by subcontractors. We have our own factory in Hungary and are therefore responsible for all employees who manufacture our shoes. Therefore, we value our craftsmen, they are largely responsible for our good quality shoes. We give them the respect they deserve and offer them good working conditions according to EU legislation and better. We are guided by the 8 principles of the Fair Wear Foundation and in some cases even better. Below are our 8 principles.

    No forced labor, or forced work is used.

    Recruitment and employment relationship is based on equal opportunity regardless of race, color, sex, religion, political affiliation, nationality, social origin, defects or disabilities.
  4. No exploitation of child labor
    The average age in the factory is 32 and we make absolutely no use of child labor. The minimum should not be lower than the age of completion of compulsory education and in any case not lower than 16.

In addition, we only work with European suppliers who respect the rights of their employees and workers throughout the supply chain. Working with suppliers in both Southern and Eastern Europe, gives us confidence that EU laws and working conditions are met. We know that they ensure that their workers are treated fairly, safely and healthily.
