Fabu Shu - Women's Shoes & Shoemaking School

$3,146

25

We're almost there! New collection now posted - see below.

Fabu Shu is a women's shoe brand based in Bangkok, Thailand. It was founded in 2010 by Pixxy Piyawan, a graduate of the London College of Fashion (where Jimmy Choo is also an alumnus).

Since Pixxy returned from London, she has regularly provided one-on-one shoemaking classes at her home for students in Bangkok. Since most of the top fashion schools are located abroad in countries like England, Italy and the United States, receiving a quality shoemaking education is extremely difficult for many Thai people.

With the generosity of Kickstarter contributors, Pixxy hopes to open a proper shoemaking school in Bangkok to help support the emergence of young and innovative Thai shoe designers.

Any level of contribution is greatly and sincerely appreciated. As gifts for backers of $85 or more, Fabu Shu is offering a limited edition version of the above shoe collection (available in all standard women's shoe sizes).

Shoe #1 is also available in blue or white newsprint (see image below). Shoe #5 is also available in red or pink.

Note: Any pledge of $200 or more qualifies for shoes from our new upcoming collection and/or the above collection.

Here are 14 shoes from our new collection:

Funds from Kickstarter contributors would be used to help purchase the following items:

  • Leather sewing machine
  • Material - fabric, insoles, outsoles, etc.
  • Sole polishing machine
  • Whiteboard
  • Last
  • Last stick
  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Shoemaking tools
