Maintaining great relationships with our manufacturing partners is extremely important to us here at Miss L Fire. We strive to create beautiful shoes, with people we like, and source the majority of the components we use locally, keeping our environmental impact as low as possible. Below is a little more background information on where our shoes are made:-
We work with two, family-run factories in Portugal, both of which have been in business in the same, amazingly beautiful area of Portugal since the 1970’s.
We love rooting through their immense archives to find amazing vintage styles which we can breathe new, modern life into.
Both factories have a small, dedicated team of craftspeople, many with 40+ years of shoemaking experience. Everything is hand finished. We love combining both old and new technologies to create our comfortable, unique, ‘Made In Portugal’ collections.
We have known the owner of our factory in China for more than 20 years and started making Miss L Fire shoes with him 5 years ago. His extremely talented Daughter now runs the business, and we work with a small, all-female team to create intricate, beautifully made shoes.
Our factory is a fair-wage factory, which is very focused on the training and well being of their staff. It is run by highly skilled individuals, some local, others hailing from Italy and Brazil, and we share production space with other well-known high-end international brands.
