Australian Made ?
For over 20 years we manufactured our ‘Vegan Wares’ branded footwear in our own workshop in Melbourne. However, the workshop ceased operation in June 2018 because it became just too hard to continue on in a local industry that, thanks to our governments free trade policies, has withered away to almost nothing.
We will happily continue to support local industry if any of the few remaining shoe makers are interested to work with us, but it is no longer feasible for ‘locally made’ to remain one of our defining values.
Clients who miss our make-to-order service or are otherwise keen to buy Australian made vegan footwear may wish to place inquiries with local shoe makers in their area. We will continue to maintain inventories of vegan leather for on-sale while there is a demand.
