Crafted Society is the worlds first transparent luxury brand. We are a socially responsible brand that offers you handcrafted luxury products without the traditional luxury mark-ups. We combine excellence with social responsibility by transparently platforming our artisans with the goal to preserve exquisite craftsmanship. We believe that a modern luxury brand should be responsible, transparent, inclusive and accessible to more than just the elite of society.
All of our products are made in Italy. Start to finish. We don't cut corners by producing most in a different part of the world and then finish it in Italy so we can stamp 'Made in Italy' on our products. Even all of our components are Italian, from the laces to the closings on our bags. Our raw materials are all sourced from highly credible & recognised Italian suppliers. A full list of the Italian suppliers we work with can be found here.
Traditional luxury brands can mark up their products anywhere between 8 to 12 times cost price. That is a lot of margin. We believe you should not have to pay that much. By selling directly to you we eliminate the unnecessary markups and pass the cost savers over to you in the form of fairer prices. We don't compromise on quality, and mark our products up just 3 to 3.5times cost price, nothing more.
All our raw materials come from certified suppliers. We are 100% transparent in our supply chain and we openly list the sources of all raw materials including our Italian cashmere yarns and real leather tanneries. There is no other brand at our quality level, offering this level of transparency.
Luxury for Good is our company manifesto and it acts as our moral compass for building a responsible business and brand. It champions an ethical, sustainable and transparent practices while the social responsibility component is solely focused on investing in the future of craftsmanship and artisanal excellence. We do this by platforming our artisans with the goal to preserve exquisite craftsmanship and pledge 1% of our global turnover - yes, you heard correctly, turnover - not profit, towards educating the next generation.

Buying a shoe online can be tricky as you may not know which size you take. We have got you covered though. When you click on the product we give you the dimensions and with shoes we provide an accurate size chart. In this chart you can find which size matches the length of your foot. We even give you the measurement inside the shoe in cm so you know how much space you will have when you wear your shoe. Normally you need 1-1,5 cm to be able to walk comfortably in your shoes but everyone has different preferences so pick whatever suits you best.
There are a few items that are made to order especially for you. This will take several weeks. You have to order and pay for the item and then we will order it with our artisans.
