Blankens is an independent company, for women by women. It all started in Sweden in 2014 when they wanted to create the perfect shoes and leather products to complement the wardrobes of women everywhere. Blankens knew that there were some compromises they never wanted to make: The products should be great in more ways than how they look – the fit, what they are made of and how they are made are equally important. Blankens also stand firm in their belief that good design should be affordable. By keeping their production close they reduce the negative impact of shipping. All Blankens products are manufactured in Portugal, a country with a rich history of craftsmanship and shoe design. Blankens collaborate with a handful of small factories, all powered by 100 percent renewable energy and all their products are made under strict European environmental regulations, by skilled craftsmen and women.
