Famolare invented the concept of sustainable fashion in 1969, 50 years ago.
We focus on renewable and sustainable materials that are produced by suppliers within a 25-mile radius of the factory, so there is less traveling involved.
Most fashion companies manufacture overseas. We produce Famolares in North America, keeping the distance between our factory and our warehouse in Los Angeles to a minimum.
We use renewable materials such as leather for our uppers, linings and insoles along with rubber for our outsoles. We also hand craft our product in such a way that they will last for years, and repair easily. There are thousands of highly coveted used and still wearable Famolares, many over 30 years old, for sale on Poshmark, Etsy, Ebay, and other websites. Not too many shoes, that old still have a long life ahead of them. It's a testament to how Famolares were built back then, and we craft them the same today.
When it comes to sustainability, Famolare is in a class by itself.
