DESIGNED IN BARCELONA,
PROUDLY MADE IN EUROPE.
WE PRODUCE OUR SNEAKERS & CLOTHING IN PORTUGAL AND WE ARE PROUD OF IT.
We believe in a better fashion industry.
We are determined to continue being part of the change for a better future where the fashion industry plays a positive role in the lives of all people involved. From the beginning, we partnered with suppliers that respect their workers, improve their living conditions, and provide them with a good working environment. Cheerfulness and goodwill can be found at our factories where employment supports current and future generations. Finally, we focused on finding suppliers in Europe that work under the same values as we believe in.
Our search started in our own country, Spain, but after visiting several factories and not meeting our expectations, we decided to knock the door on our neighbor country, Portugal. Portugal is well known not only for its quality footwear industry but also for its innovation in manufacturing of garments and the ability to take complete control of the supply chain. We are proud to work with our current suppliers and to continue protecting our planet!
BY GREAT PEOPLE
WITH A FAIR SALARY
AND A NORMAL EU WORKING SCHEDULE
Located in the North of Portugal, Felgueiras is the heart of the country’s footwear industry. Our supplier, You Shoes, has been maintaining a high standard of ethics, fair wages and shifts, and gender equality from the start. Creating a sense of belonging!
We’ve also partnered with Eyand, throughout Portugal, to lead us to a process where people, product, and planet are equally treated with respect and integrity.
It is to be mentioned that all workers follow a 8-hour shift from Monday to Friday and overtime hours are permitted under additional pay. Each worker is not allowed to work more than 2 additional hours per day. All workers can request time off as they are entitled to 22 working days per year.
OUR WORKERS ARE TREATED LIKE FAMILY.
HONEST AND ETHICAL
In SAYE, we encourage our suppliers to increase transparency by requiring our collaborators to perform social audits and recurrent chemical tests to verify that trust, integrity, and honesty are guaranteed in their work environments.
We choose a natural approach in our unisex clothing collection where we aren't resorting to any chemicals for the sake of our people and environment. We are proud of these methods used in our supplier's work environment and will continue our mindful approach to life.
WE USE LOCAL MATERIALS
REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
We only work with suppliers from the Iberian Peninsula and Europe. The concentration of our manufacturing suppliers within the same geographical area allows us to create an efficient and fast collaborating network which ensures the use of local materials and reduces our carbon footprint.
A prime example of reducing our carbon footprint is our choice of ecological yarns and natural dyes in the manufacturing of our clothing. From the start, we were concerned about the resources used in our supply chain and their usability after being discarded.
If we are at a stage where a new product is entering production, we place a lot of emphasis on selecting the appropriate suppliers to meet our quality standards and buying certified materials that contribute to reaching our sustainability goals. You can count on us in aspects such as production methods, materials, and packaging to bring you a highly sustainable product.
In addition, sharing habits and customs with our collaborators facilitates communication and generates greater involvement of our suppliers in the project, which has a direct impact on the quality of our final product.
