London, UK - August/September 2020
The Essen story began with the search for good quality, timeless footwear without the premium price tag. A search that quickly proved that sometimes the simplest things are the most difficult to find. So they paused to imagine a line of their own and in 2016 ESSEN was born - a brand dedicated to beautiful, classic footwear that stands the test of time.
All ESSEN products are designed and developed in Melbourne and entirely handmade in Italy, Portugal & Spain. Our offering is a careful curation of wardrobe staples, available exclusively online. Because we wanted to do it right, we’re starting small. Our styles are limited releases, created in small production runs. This allows us to take the utmost care when creating our pieces, designing every detail to ensure lasting appeal and timeless sophistication.
We have created the LDC values in the form of our three symbols that explore the mindful, traceable and transparent processes and practices that our brands adhere to and stand for, to help you discover how the products are made and make conscious choices.
