My name is Joppe Besseling and I am an artisanal shoemaker based in Utrecht, the Netherlands with a focus on sustainable shoes and leather goods.
While studying at art school I got more and more interested in the craft. After trying out several different disciplines I got into shoemaking which developed into a true passion.
The artisanal shoe world is one with a lot of tradition and a lot of beauty. I aim to show that beauty to a new public by making artisanal sneakers. Using modern design and traditional techniques.
I recognize the need for more sustainability in fashion that's why natural materials are used for the making of my products. I don't work with seasonal collections and try to make timeless pieces. Which are only made to order to avoid overproduction and create waste.
