How does FEIT incorporate slow fashion into its manufacturing processes?
Tull Price: After fifteen years, with nearly fifty people worldwide, FEIT are leading the world in handmade footwear production. Sustaining the artform is a major part of our ethos: all FEIT shoes are made in small quantities from start to finish by one master craftsman who signs and dates each box after it is complete.
Making shoes by hand allows us to build our footwear from natural materials without the use of harsh chemicals or artificial treatments. Our vegetable-dyed leather is supple, breathable, and naturally odor-resistant; each pair of shoes is designed to age gracefully and develop a unique patina with wear.
What role does MY FEIT play in the slow fashion model?
Tull Price: MY FEIT is a circular program providing post-purchase Care, Repair, and Donation services designed to increase the depth and integrity of every FEIT footwear product. This increases the lifespan of the product as it includes lifetime repair warranty, complimentary cleaning, conditioning, and restoration services and the ability to donate any unused FEIT products for credit towards future purchases.
