Beyond aesthetics, our collaboration fosters social impact, providing dignified livelihoods and bolstering local economies. Fair trade practices ensure that every pair contributes to the prosperity of its creators.

We offer repairable features like replaceable soles and hand-stitching, empowering customers to extend product life and reduce waste. Plus, any cobbler can resole our shoes, supporting local craftsmanship and promoting a circular economy

Ethical Production

Handpicked for their exceptional skills, our artisans are the heart and soul of our atelier. Housed in the well-lit upper storey of a charming heritage inn, they create magic with their hands while enjoying the comforting aroma of Turkish tea and the rhythmic beats of their favourite radio tunes. As their nimble fingers weave wonders, friendly banter fills the air, adding an extra touch of joy to their creative process. At Akana, we believe in valuing their artistry, which is why our artisans are rewarded with fair wages and health insurance recognising their dedication and talent.


We minimise our carbon footprint with sustainable packaging. All materials are recycled and biodegradable, including eco-friendly business cards. Our Akanas come in cotton or jute drawstring bags, rejecting plastic to uphold our environmental values.
