Saving the world is not the only thing on my mind. I really care about all my fellow creatures, but I have to admit I also really like looking and feeling good. This led to some major frustrations a couple of years ago. Where could I find shoes that were stylish but also ethically made?
By then I had been a vegetarian for over 20 years, but the only shoes I liked were made of animal skin.
And then I realised.. I have a calling!
In 2013 I launched this online boutique and two years later I started a new website just for men’s shoes, called Painted Pony.
This year, I’ve decided to open up my shop for international customers by translating the website to a somewhat more popular language, called English.
Lucky, lucky me!
