Terra Plana were delighted to receive the award for Best Ethical Footwear Retailer of the Year at the prestigious industry event Drapers Footwear Awards 2008, in association with Gore. The event was held at the Park Lane Hilton Hotel, London on Thursday 8th May. This year there were a record number of entries, making the competition tougher than ever before, so it was a real achievement to pick up this sought after award.
Here’s what Drapers said about us in the Winners’ Brochure:
“An obsessive attention to detail in terms of design and product lifecycle marks Terra Plana out as the exemplar of ethical footwear. Its use of innovative materials including recycled foam footbeds and Latex support this company’s focus on sustainability. Never one to rest on its laurels, Terra Plana constantly pushes the boundaries of ethical footwear. Having developed various concepts for its brands – it offers ‘recycled’, ‘health’ and ‘efficient’ product categories to name but a few – Terra Plana is now storming ahead with plans to introduce brand ambassadors and guest bloggers on its website. With its niche brands including Terra Plana, Vivo Barefoot, Worn Again, Dopie, Trip Clip, Soul Of Africa and Po-Zu, the Terra Plana style is eco-friendly, chic and comfortable. More stores and international franchises should help secure its place as the leading ethical footwear retailer.”
