Sustainable

The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world, and it’s time we rethink the materials, processes, and packaging used to create our beloved purchases. This is why we’ve done the upfront legwork and vetted our brands to ensure that our planet’s health is top of mind for them as well.

Woman-Owned

Women lift up half of the sky - by investing in women, you’re assisting in the process of creating more wealth for families and communities. The successes of women shape the way young girls see themselves as they develop into leaders, and it's essential for the world to provide leaders that mirror half of the population. 

Toxic Free

The secret behind the beauty, personal-care, and fashion industry is that they’re virtually unregulated, and therefore, allowed to use untested chemicals in their products. Exposure to these ingredients can be harmful overtime, and that’s why we’ve vetted each and every single one of these brands to ensure that they’re up to standards for those looking for a cleaner beauty routine or may be more sensitive to harsh ingredients.

Ethical

Here at ourCommonplace, all brands have our ethical stamp of approval, which encompasses decent working conditions, treatment of workers, and fair-wages. Through providing a platform for purchasing ethical goods and ensuring all brands uphold ethical standards, we hope to take us towards a more equitable and just world.

BIPOC-Owned

We believe in uplifting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities by empowering their businesses. By choosing to allocate your purchasing power to BIPOC-owned businesses, you're not only strengthening local BIPOC communities — you're also contributing to shrinking the racial wealth gap, fostering job creation, and propelling diverse representation across consumer industries.

Cruelty Free

Animal tests are often painful and cause the suffering and deaths of millions of animals every year. Having this stamp of approval means that no animals were tested on, harmed or killed in the process of making the product. When you opt in for cruelty-free brands, you’re opting out of animal testing, and investing in clean products that are made for the benefit of your body, animals, and the environment.

A modern reinterpretation of a classic style, The Luxe Loafer features contemporary detailing and is intricately handcrafted from supple Italian box calf leather. With a lightly cushioned insole for added comfort and a modest stacked heel with metal inlay, this Portuguese-made pair will appeal to women looking to project subtle confidence. 

For this style we traveled to Portugal, a country of rich culture and an illustrious heritage of leather workmanship and shoe manufacturing. Here, we work closely with a solid base of local craftsmen. 

Fits true to size - If you usually wear a half size and have standard width or narrow feet go down one size for the best fit. If you usually wear a full size, go with your usual size - Cow leather lining and insole – Durable rubber outsole – Structured almond toe - Cushioned foot bed - Heel height measures 30mm or 1.18 inches

ESSĒN was founded as a response to a fashion cycle that overproduces more than it carefully crafts, chases trends more than it determines classics, and wastes more than it sustains. They strive to slow down that cycle and focus on making every piece essential.  

Their shoes are hardworking classics that are aesthetically beautiful, supremely comfortable and ethically made. They allow women to move seamlessly and confidently through their day, without compromising on style, comfort and craftsmanship.

All styles are handmade in Italy, Portugal and Spain in solar-powered factories by expert artisans who have been making shoes for generations. They’re made in small production runs and in limited releases, consciously slowing down the fashion cycle and making every style a carefully considered wardrobe staple.
