Our philosophy

We believe that the fight against poverty isn’t about charity, but about justice and equality.

Championing the important message that there is a lack of understanding in the fashion marketplace about the people that make our clothing and what conditions these workers may face. We believe that fashion has the potential to do great things – things like pulling entire communities out of poverty or preserve and restore our world’s natural resources.

LEAF was founded on the idea that socially responsible work conditions and environmental considerations aren't just trends, but a way of the future. We believe in empowerment, transparency, and doing right by all. This means making premium quality products with a lifetime warranty, and it means treating every employee and producer, everywhere in the world, with respect.

Leaf espadrilles

A popular saying is: "dress how you want to be addressed" and we don´t completely agree with that statement. We believe that if you feel good and comfortable in your clothes, you are happier and that makes you shine in a special way that translates into a positive attitude which others can admire and respect.

Knowing "where you stand" implies a confident woman who knows who she is, what she wants and how to get it. A woman who chooses her own paths and routes in life. A woman who knows her way and goes for it. We want to join our customers on their way towards happiness.

#beLeaf #beHappy are our main hashtags and with them we want our fans to learn, that our goal is for them to be happy, proud of themselves, to dare to pursue their goals, live the life they want, feel free and adventurous. The purpose of our brand isn´t just selling the best espadrilles, but encouraging them to trust their gut feeling, to be more self confident and show what they are made of. We want to inspire them to be unique, to find their own style and glow in their outfits. To stand out from the average woman and feel powerful, not because of what they wear, but because of who they are.

Opportunities for a better future. Step by step for a better world!
