We are TŌ, 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.

Our Team

We’re a small group of designers
dedicated to creating exceptional
footwear for our customers.

Brand Ethos

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy eir mod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat.

From the very start, we’ve set five guidelines for ourselves, which we call the Mindful Principles. We think this way of thinking should be the natural, obvious way of creating products in our industry. Our name TŌZEN, meaning “self-evident” in Japanese, reflects that idea.

Our Mindful Principles

  • Create sustainable products that help the planet, not damage it.
  • Design contemporary, timeless pieces utilising the best materials.
  • Consider our carbon footprint on every action we take.
  • Only work with ethical, quality- controlled factories in Europe.
  • Providing transparency about our products towards our customers.


While our production takes place in small-scale factories in Portugal, the design and prototyping of our products occur in The Netherlands. Our creative process unfolds within the walls of a fully renovated factory that once served as a leather-tannery facility.
