Clearly the trend moves towards longevity of the products - away from mass production and throwaway society towards more individuality and creativity. Slow fashion lays the stress on creation and represents a conscious consumer behavior and more appreciation. Quality instead of quantity is in the focus. The individual production steps are still visible at HARTJES. The selection of the raw materials, the sustainable production, and the premium processing make each shoe a single piece.
HARTJES is a responsible manufacturer and acts fair and ecologic showing transparency about the origin as well as respect for people and nature, from the resource-saving transport routes to the use of natural materials to fair working conditions for all 140 employees.
