    MANUFACTURING

    Each pair of TWOOBS is handmade in Houjie, a small town in China two hours from Hong Kong, that specialises in footwear production.
    The team that helps us bring the TWOOBS dream to life is owned by Julie Chen, an amazing woman who leads a team of shoe experts.

    Our manufacturing takes place in a small factory, owned by a husband and wife duo. Our founders Jess and Stef travel to Houjie at least twice a year to meet with them and oversee the production process. Hao Junfeng and his wife Cheng Yufang both work in the factory alongside their production team, where each worker is paid well above minimum wage.

    A little more about our manufacturing team:

    Julie Chen owns our supply company and employs the team of women who help create TWOOBS. She loves to travel the world, most often to the US, to learn about international practices.

    Tracy Ting Li is our main point of contact, and she works closely with the factory and our material suppliers to oversee the manufacturing process of TWOOBS.

    Married couple Hao Junfeng and Cheng Yufang own the factory and work in it every day. Before opening this factory, they headed up a larger one, but decided they wanted to open something small so they could maintain great quality and have more control over the whole process. They provide lunch for their staff daily and all eat together as a family.

    CARBON NEUTRAL PRODUCTION

    90% of our suppliers are located within Dongguan (approximately the size of Darwin), to ensure minimal travel time for all production components. TWOOBS is a carbon neutral brand, meaning from raw materials right through to being shipped to your doorstep, we offset 100% of our emissions. Our offsets currently go to a Water Purification Project in Cambodia, which provides locally made ceramic water purifiers to over 1 million Cambodians. By filtering water instead of boiling it over a wood burning fire, these purifiers prevent 90,000 tonnes of carbon emissions and protect 450 hectares of Cambodian forest every year.

    A KINDA OFFICE

    At TWOOBS HQ, we believe change is made through our everyday choices. That's why we've made the commitment to do business kinda differently throughout our everyday operations. And these are some of the kinda ways we commit to being an environmentally friendly office:
    Solar panels · Apple and citrus trees throughout our rooftop garden · Rainwater irrigation system · Motion-activated lights  · 100% Recycled toilet paper from  · Who Gives a Crap  · Non-toxic cleaning products from Thank You and Eco Store  · Reusable coffee cups from Frank Green

    SATCHEL-FREE SHIPPING

    Each pair of TWOOBS will arrive to you in nothing more than their (very stylish and very pink) shoebox, sealed with a vegan, bio-based and compostable tape. All packaging materials are made from recycled paper, and are fully recyclable, so everything can be put in your home recycle bin and will be repurposed or degrade back into the earth naturally. All of our shoeboxes and stuffing paper are produced in Houjie, China.

    WHAT'S NEXT

    We don't believe that a 3 or 5 year goal to become sustainable is good enough to bring about the necessary change for our planet. That's why we have a plan to be Australia's most sustainable footwear brand by August 2021. To achieve this, we've engaged a team of sustainability experts:
