Manufacturing policy


Due to the general outsourcing of manufacturing from Europe to countries with lower labour costs, many people tend to associate the manufacturing of footwear with poor labour conditions. This is not the case of Bestard.

 

Bestard is a traditional family company which believes in the value of skilled workmanship and that the backbone of the company is our employees and the people who make our shoes. We are therefore proud to be able to be able to maintain the manufacturing of our products within the European Union, where factors such as the following are protected and guaranteed by law:

 

  • Employment is freely chosen
  • There is no discrimination in employment
  • No exploitation of child labour
  • Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining
  • Payment of a living wage
  • No excessive working hours
  • Safe and healthy working conditions
  • Legally binding employment  relationship

 

Therefore, you can be assured that your Bestard shoes have been produced by skilled workers in good working conditions in line with our values and guaranteed by the labour laws of the European Union.
