About the Manufacturer and the Shoes:
Clemente is a Danish company that designs and produces hand-felted shoes. The company was established by Martin and Anne Christoffersen (brother and sister) together with Reynaldo Clemente Sanchez who was born in the Philippines. The founders explain:
It all began after a vacation in the Philippines to visit Reynaldo’s hometown, his family and friends. We soon developed a love for the country and its friendly people.
All of us had a wish to start some sort of independent business and we thought: “Why not realize that dream by creating jobs here; in a poor but charming country?”
The vision was to create new jobs with good working conditions and shared responsibility. We wanted to develop a workplace where all members of the staff would feel a community spirit and develop themselves personally as well as professionally. Furthermore, we wanted a production that would not only be viable, but also environmentally sound and climate-friendly. In short: we wanted a production that we would all be able to feel good about.
Our first employees were taught how to felt in 2007. They (still) use no machines in the production process; everything is hand-made. Approximately 40 men and women ages 18-61 work in our production every day. The men are in charge of the felting while the women sew.
