Manufacturing Policy

Due to the widespread outsourcing of manufacturing from Europe to countries with lower labor costs, many people tend to associate shoe manufacturing with poor working conditions. This is not the case with Bestard. Bestard is a traditional family business that believes in the value of skilled workforce and that the backbone of the company is our employees. Therefore, we are proud to be able to continue manufacturing all of our products in the European Union, where factors such as the following are protected and guaranteed by law:

  • The job is freely chosen

  • No use of child labor
  • Freedom of association and the right for collective bargaining
  • Payment of a living wage
  • Regulated working hours
  • Safe and healthy working conditions
  • Legally binding employment relationship

Therefore, you can be sure that your Bestard shoes have been manufactured by qualified workers and in good working conditions, in accordance with our values ​​and guaranteed by the labor laws of the European Union.
