    Their Story:

    "Po-Zu launched in 2006 from the back room of a little house in Islington, London. The original range consisted of two house slippers, which were made in Glastonbury UK, at one of the last remaining shoe factories in the country!

    With help from our friends at Terra Plana, our slippers made their way overseas and were distributed to a few counties, reaching as far as Japan. We were nominated for a Green Award in recognition of our unique coconut husk shoebox, which doubles as a seed tray!

    As orders began to fly out, Po-Zu expanded overseas to a small eco-friendly factory in Portugal where our shoes are still handmade to this day. It was there that our team developed a natural latex sole that enabled our iconic slippers to roam around outdoors: The Peasy slipper-shoe was born! We also found time to create our world famous Edible Shoe Cream. It’s made from ingredients that are so pure you can actually eat it!

    The following years saw the launch of our vegan range, made from the finest European hemp, along with two major collaborations; with Maharishi, creating utilitarian and multi‐functional boots and sandals. Our following collaboration with Amazon Life brought the WELL boot; a biodegradable water-resistant Wellington type boot, made from Amazonian vegetable rubber. We joined forces with Timberland to take eco-conscious footwear a big step forward with two consecutive co-branded men’s collections, creating the first of its kind, recyclable shoe that was also made from biodegradable components.

    Our founder and CEO Sven Segal, won the Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 at PEA Awards (People and Environment Achievement Awards.) We collaborated with the New York based artist Michel Tcherevkoff and crafted his ingenious floral creations designs into high fashion and wearable art! These were exhibited at the Grassi Museum in Leipzig, Germany as well as at the Virtual Shoe Museum."
