Clemente Shoes is a Danish company that was established in 2006 after a holiday in the Philippines. The owners came home with the idea to create a company, which in turn would create new jobs in the Phillippines with good working conditions and a shared responsibility. Furthermore, they wanted a production that would not only be viable, but also environmentally sound and climate-friendly.
The shoes are all designed in Denmark and then produced in the Phillippines, where the employees (still) use no machines in the production process; everything is hand-made. Approximately 40 men and women in the age of 18-61 years work in the production every day.
