Z&D Makers is a shoe brand based in Santiago de Chile since 2010 designed by Nicole Zarhi Daccarett.
Was born with the will of making shoes honouring the age old traditional craftmanship driven by timeless styles in a twist of classic, masculine and fun. Though the brand is created by one person, we are thankful to be surrounded by people that share the same vision.
TO TAKE IT SLOW
In the process we pay attention to make the most natural decisions to respect and enhance the material´s nature. In going slow we witness the times needed to work each natural material.
Mostly out of love, each pair of shoe goes through various careful quality controls.
TIMELESS = BUY LESS
To observe and choose well. Your idea is what makes your things always fresh and new. Without question this results in 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. They live.
