By now you would know from a couple of our previous blogs that we do made-to-order shoes and boots. We can also do MTO bags to match your footwear!

We currently have the Pasadena bag in our range and are working on new designs for bags, which we’ll share with you at a later date. Though if you have a specific style of bag in mind feel free to send us a drawing or photo, or bring in a sample bag for one of our designers to see.

Pictured above is a recent customer order for a pair of MTO Edna (rowdy) shoes and a matching Pasadena bag in red and aubergine. You could do the same and pick your preferred colours!

Meet Jamie

Jamie is a 36 y.o. chimpanzee living in the Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, Washington USA – a caring place for chimpanzees formerly exploited then discarded from the entertainment and biomedical testing industries. Jamie is incredibly intelligent, enjoys playing with toys and other objects, and is known for creating imaginative projects keeping herself rather busy.

By now you’re probably asking why are we talking about Jamie on a Vegan Wares blog? Well she happens to be one of our favourite MTO customers!

Jamie LOVES boots and a couple of years ago CSNW contacted Vegan Wares hoping we could make some up for her. So we did! We made her a pair of green boots, specifically for Jamie’s feet, using our microfibre materials and our expert shoe makers.

We loved making her the boots and were extremely happy to see her wearing and playing with them! We’ll be making her another pair soon, so we’ll share more pics with you when that happens.  🙂
