How did all started?
We are two friends passionate about fashion, who have always been interested on the latest news and trends, go through the online universe of textile design together, or go shopping quite often.
One day, looking for a pair of shoes for a wedding, we both were clear: we had always had in mind to create and launch a fashion business, more specifically footwear. We considered there was a gap to cover, in terms of a firm that offered the possibility of buying shoes that you can combine with formal suit, as well as with jeans for the weekend. A brand that offers the most classic model, but also those models that we call “the updated classic” or even “the classic with a rogue touch”.
Another reason that took us to star this adventure is that, from our point of view, a good footwear must be quality, and in Spain we are pioneers in this worldwide. Leather and artisan manufacturing are for us the most important aspects to achieve quality and we want to guarantee them in all our shoes.
Since that day in November 2017, we started to set up Folckers, a brand of handmade Spanish shoes. After six months of hard work, in May 2018 the first five models went on sale online.
What is our vision?
We always had clear our target: offer a classic product, but completely updated, with a point of distinction, youthful and versatile. This last feature is undoubtedly the one that best defines Folckers philosophy.
Our commitment is that our clients use their Folckers with a pair of shorts for a walk in any vacation place, as well as with a suit to go to the office or a social event. Therefore, one of our pillars is the product because, unlike other fashion items, shoes must be an enduring investment that defines the person who wears them. Therefore, we manufacture them with the highest quality veal leather.
For sure, the other main pillar for Folckers is the client. As Folckers is an online sale firm, our point is to facilitate returns and exchanges management. Customer service and after-sales service are the mains axis of our operative.
Finally, we focus our efforts on offering clear and updated information through our social networks. Folckers philosophy seeks to interact with our customers through networks. We want you to give your opinion and be part of the team when deciding which models to create. Definitely, we want to achieve customer loyalty through networks, not only when buying shoes, but also when creating our collections, so that they can always find what they are looking for, both in terms of design and quality.
Do you want to be part of Folckers philosophy?
You create Folckers philosophy. Either through social networks, our email or by contacting us directly by the phone. Do you want us to make some model in another color, or in another type of leather? You just have to ask for it and we will manage it. Do you want us to create any model that we do not have yet? Tell us! We will let you know when we star making it.
This is our philosophy, and these are us, Folckers, Antonio and Jaime. Get involved! Buy! Enjoy your Folckers forever!
