Z&D Makers is a shoe brand based in Santiago de Chile since 2010 designed by Nicole Zarhi Daccarett.
Is about making shoes honouring the age old traditional craftamnship. Driven by timeless style in a twist of classic, masculine and fun.
Moccasins make me happy, they stand as a love story between me and my first steps in the craft.
TO TAKE IT SLOW
We pay attention to make the most natural decisions to respect and enhance the material´s nature. We believe in the power of going slow and the times needed to work natural materials. For example, our shoes actually rest in their last for a couple of days in a process that lets them "sit" and take their final shape.
Also, each pair of shoe goes through various careful quality controls (mostly because we love to).
TIMELESS = BUY LESS
Choose well. Your idea is what makes your things always fresh and new. Without question this results in less waste and lots of pleasure while caring for your selections.
Delighted, we are honored to use the traditional abilities within shoemaking.
For more than 30 years our partner factory has been developing the skills and capabilities of their own employees. Coming from traditional Spanish heritage they create under their own "Quality before Quantity" beliefs.
Eleven workers create one pair of shoe, while new craftman learn the traditional processes from the experienced ones.
PRODUCTS ARE UNIQUE
No matter how hard we try to make them equal. As natural, they will age as things naturally age, changes will appear. It will depend on you.
