Our Brazilian Footwear factory was founded by two brothers, Luciano and Helio Nantal, in the city of Igrejinha in 1979. Calling on the knowledge and expertise they amassed over the years working in large-scale shoe factories, the brothers chose to start their own footwear factory in the region. Since opening its doors, the factory has grown in size and capability, currently employing 43 workers to create their own private label in addition to producing goods for other international brands, including Poppy Barley. Igrejinha is part of an expansive and established footwear industry in the South of Brazil, dating back to German shoemakers settling in the region as early as 1824.
Poppy Barley screens all its factories for positive working conditions. Find out more here.
