Inspired by the resilient streets of Brooklyn, New York, BED|STÜ opened for business in a small Los Angeles warehouse in 1995. We believe in taking our time to create products that are as individual as those who wear them. We buck the trend of mass production to ensure our products are made the right way, honoring the cobbler and the craft. We will not compromise quality. Our unapologetic line of footwear and accessories we make is like each member of the BED|STÜ Family: Genuine, Unique, Imperfect
At BED|STÜ we honor the craft. Each BED|STÜ shoe, boot and handbag uses the highest quality organically tanned, chrome free leather. The leather is hand cut, sewn, washed and tumbled for softness, then Individually finished. Just like no two finger prints are the same, each BED|STÜ product is distinct.
We use vegetable tanned, all natural leather, free range whenever possible, and we hand finish our own products. We are working towards becoming 100% organic in our process.
Cobbler pieces are made using traditional techniques including: Goodyear welt, hand weaving, hand stitching, washing and tumbling.
