Who We Are

We craft high-quality leather sneakers that carries a greater meaning behind a pair of shoes – a pair that takes part in fighting human trafficking in Indonesia.

Meet the Eden

At Lacess, we offer luxurious sneakers that are simple, attainable and sustainable. Over numerous prototypes and testing from various suppliers, we have finalized a sleek and elegant design that looks and feels luxurious on your feet. It’s a wardrobe staple that can be worn with anything, for any occasion.

Eden in White

Eden in Blush

Our inspirations came from children's drawing books, the ones where you connect the dots to complete a picture. We want to connect women from the world to join this mission together.

Our Leather

We proudly use top grade Nappa leather from Turkey to bring you the most comfortable, soft and durable leather. Hailing from one of the region’s leading tanneries, complying with global REACH standards; it’s reassuring that all social and environmental requirements are met in its development.

How we give

Lacess is all about giving back. We have partnered with Compassion First, a not-for-profit organisation that helps women and children from the horrific human trafficking in Indonesia. Their mission is to empower survivors to rebuild their own lives.

For a young girl who has experienced severe trauma, the first week of the aftercare journey can be overwhelming. She will meet the dedicated individuals who will care for her daily, and she will also receive her very own welcome packet that includes clothing, a stuffed animal, bedding, and toiletries.

Each pair of Lacess sold will be contributing to their first set of clothing.

These would be the first set of clothes she could call her own, that she could wear to feel comfortable, secure, and taken care of.

Testimonials

Sizing & Timeline

Step 1: Stand on top of a piece of paper with your heels against the wall, and all of your weight pressed down against the wall.

Step 2: Measure the length of your foot from heel to the tip of your longest toe. 

If you have wider feet, get a size up!
If you have wider feet, get a size up!

A survey will be sent out after the campaign to collect your size & colour preference. Please submit the survey by 1 March 2019 if you'd like to receive the product in time.

We have finished prototyping and are raising funds to secure all equipment to start production.

Risks and challenges

We have selected suppliers with extensive experience working with many luxury brands, so we are quite confident this project will deliver on time. We have spent 12 months in developing the best prototypes, testing out different designs to ensure the quality is secured.

Nonetheless, there are always unforeseeable risks in manufacturing throughout the supply chain, so we will monitor as closely as possible to minimise these risks.

Thank you for your support on our project! We are so excited to bring these shoes to you, and will keep you posted throughout the progress!
