Sourcing and Ethics

Olive Aubrey aims to offer a curated repertoire of go-to wardrobe shapes that can be returned to again and again, avoiding the need for Too Much Stuff.   Popular styles and shoe-last shapes will be continued through the seasons, accommodating our variable weather patterns and lifestyle, and to make it easy for customers to know what works.    

All our shoes are made in Italy.  The Italian factory that produces our in-house designs has been visited to assess the working environment for workers, and images from these factory visits are included in our blog and the 'About' section.  

Our motivation is to deliver quality at low cost to the customer.  That's why we sell online only, and keep our packaging and marketing simple.  Photography is done in-house and on the owner - so you can judge what the shoes will really look like when worn by someone who is not a model.

As our volumes grow, we aim to move to re-cycled postage bags as soon as it is feasible to meet the minimum order volumes required by suppliers.
