We are super excited to introduce BED|STÜ leather shoes and bags!

BED|STÜ is a family-operated business for over 24 years, creating unique leather handbags, wallets, and shoes, inspired by the rugged and resilient streets of Bedford Stuyvesant, NY.  Each product is ethically handcrafted using materials from nature, such as water based glues, plant based dyes and natural tannins from tree bark and leaves. They use biodegradable material because they are better for us and our planet.
