Liz Foye on Oct 15, Traditional shoe-making with minimalist design. The story of thewhiteribbon began in , when Dori travelled to Marrakech for an artisan's NGO project. By somewhat of a coincidence, she discovered the work of a uniquely talented artisan, who soon became her mentor.
With the collaboration of the helpful shoemaker, the first collection was soon born. The inspiration was drawn from North African crafts, however created with a minimal design, resembling contemporary ballet flats. A few years and a lot more experience on, today, all of our designs are entirely handmade by a small team of highly skilled artisans in two amazing corners of the world; Budapest and Marrakech.
Our ballet flats and bags are entirely designed by Dori and are made in collaboration with our two main artisans; Malek and Pista Bacsi uncle Steve in Hungarian.
The current set-up means Dori travels a lot in the Budapest-Berlin-Marrakech triangle; designing, selecting fabrics, setting up the production phases as well as doing all the photography and a myriad of other things that are involved when having your own business… our philosophy Coming from a country Hungary, where shoemaking is only second to Italy..! The art of handmade shoes in Hungary is disappearing with the exception of the famous Budapester shoes , as most people choose to buy cheaper, factory made shoes, usually from Asia.
We are aware handmade shoes are more costly, however we believe they are also of higher quality and worth an investment. Having a pair made for you is certainly a special treat. We aim to align these traditional values with a conscious brand philosophy.
We consider and plan every aspect of our project, from fabrics we use to all products being hand-made to making sure our artisans are fairly paid partners, working under fair working conditions. We all know each other personally and truly work as a team. From an ecological and designing perspective our ballet flats and oxford shoes bare the specialty of overlapping upper layers design similarly to many african and far-eastern traditional shoes.
Due to the shoes' special design, we are able to use smaller fabrics and minimise our leather waste. Adding to this, we often re-use the leather waste from our shoe-making to create small pouches or we up-cycle tiny fabric pieces for jewelry. We also use almost exclusively leathers that are 'left-overs or waste'. We work with a small family business a lovely couple in Budapest who travel seasonally to Italy to buy off over-produced or 'faulty' leather fabrics from the most famous fashion businesses.
As a result, we are often working with fabrics from Prada, Chanel and the likes..! Dori founded the TWR in She is the designer, partly the maker with the craftspeople team and the photographer of all products. Skye joined our team in September, and works for us as a freelancer. She is a photographer from Australia, who has worked in the fashion industry in New York, Australia and Berlin.
Sebastian is a talented furniture maker and audio engineer who has been helping the project expanding since He helps with almost all parts of our work, including design, development and customer service with our German customers. Before meeting Pista Bacsi a few years ago, his main craft was custom horse riding boots. He has worked as a shoemaker for 40 years now. We met a few years ago and since than he dedicates all his time to thewhiteribbon. We offer global shipping.

Once the soles scratch slightly, you can wear the ballet flats as usual.
