The fashion industry has always been a massive machine which over-consumes, overproduces and over pollutes. These practices have been accepted for far too long. It’s an obsolete and dangerous way of conducting business which contributes to environmental degradation.
We follow the Made-to-Order (MTO) model which helps to reduce overproduction because every product actually has a committed owner before it’s made. MTO also minimizes overconsumption by eliminating inventory, and giving you the opportunity to truly consider what you’re purchasing as opposed to making an impulsive buying decision. In these ways we can all mitigate the depletion of natural resources and the production of greenhouse gases.
After your order is confirmed, you will receive email updates during the production period to involve you in the process. Through these updates and a special booklet included with your purchase, you will learn about the steps it takes to fulfill your order, and come to know the incredible artisans who invest their skill and passion when handcrafting your items.
Our products are handcrafted to last for many years with the intention that they can be passed down from generation to generation. Based on timeless designs they will outlast trends and become legacy items. Longer lasting products are better for your wallet and for the environment.
This is my third pair from them and I cannot be happier with their shoes. Style and quality. It takes some time for them to get in but they are worth the wait. I’ll be buying several more in the future.”Lance H.
Being a leather footwear brand, we are extremely aware of the impact our business practices have not only on our workers and immediate environment, but the world at large. That is why we take great strains to mitigate any potential damages.
We realize that our team members are individuals before anything else, and we must honor their uniqueness. In order to do this we have created an environment where mutual respect, enjoyment, support, collaboration, openness, growth and humility are fostered; one where everyone can flourish and do their best work.
Products which outlast trends and can be repaired rather than replaced are essential. That’s why our collection is rooted in classic designs with a contemporary flair. The materials we use have been carefully selected for their durability, and your Beckett Simonon products can be easily maintained and repaired if needed.
The artisans who handcraft your goods are the backbone of our company, and it is a privilege to work with them. It's our duty to honor their craft and their dignity by providing safe and enjoyable working conditions, above-average wages and a comprehensive benefits package to each one of them.
Our Made-To-Order (MTO) business model ensures every item we make already has an owner and eliminates overproduction. During the production period you will receive email updates to involve you with our practices and introduce you to the artisans.
Even though it's difficult to find materials with zero environmental impact, we make it a priority to use ethically-produced materials processed with minimal toxins, repurposed from waste, or made with natural fibers. In our efforts to identify the most environmentally sound materials possible, we are constantly researching and testing new options.
