A human rights lawyer who brings the world to your feet
Our main story today is about Jessica and her company, Le Mondeur, which makes ethnically handcrafted shoes in Portugal, using artisan textiles from around the world.
What I love about Le Mondeur is that it uses shoes as a canvas to tell the story behind each unique textile and fabric, and that it uses material that you don’t typically see on apparel in general (cork, anyone?). Their products are bright, fun, and energizing.
