EthosWe are Tōzen, a footwear design studio. Inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship, our products are what we like to call Mindfully Made: Simple and timeless by design, ethically made from sustainable materials that are meant to last — all for honest, accessible pricing. Products that are good for you, and the planet.
Tōzen is a indepently operating studio based in The Netherlands, where our products are designed in close collaboration with a small-scale manufacturer in Portugal. The brand was conceived after being inspired by Japan’s mindful way of living and creating. Our goal is applying these traditional values to the world of modern footwear design.
