Slow fashion = no mass production

We founded ‘Butts and Shoulders’ four years ago. As friends we wanted to share our passion for authenticity, craftsmanship and durable products which stand for a lifetime. No mass productions, because we truly believe in slow fashion.


Functional design. Designed from the ground up. 

With our ‘Butts and Shoulders’ brand we develop products which are unique and outstanding. Our products are born because we couldn’t find them in the stores. That’s why we decided to make them by ourselves. Because of our experience in the fashion, footwear and lifestyle industry this was a natural step for us. Creating only the best of the best. No concessions. To create the best and unique is our main goal. Feel free to have a look at our movies-page.


Grow your own patina

Since all of our ‘Butts and Shoulders’ products are made of natural vegetable tanned leather, we use a minimal amount of chemicals for the tanning and the production of our products. The moment you unpack our products, the unique age-ing process will start. By using it, touching it and even by exposing it to daylight the looks of our products will change. Therefore, the more you will use it, the more beautiful it will get. Like a true friendship that will grow over time. The ‘Butts and Shoulders’ leather crafted goods will be your buddy for the rest of your life. Find all of our owner updates and product highlights on our instagram page.


We work with the best partners

Together with the best partners we developed our leather crafted boots, sneakers and bags. Designed in the Netherlands, crafted in Portugal. We consequently try to serve you the best and most of all, we want to delight you with products that are designed and developed with great care and with a keen eye for detail. We visit our partners regularly to discuss the process and the quality of the goods. Our aim is to start long-term relationships and we strive for win-win situations.
