CRAFTSMANSHIP & ETHICS
Freya Rose is a British designer renowned for creating world-renowned shoe collections that incorporate her expertise in fine jewellery with the finest levels of craftsmanship and intricate detailing. Ethically produced designs are integral to the Freya Rose philosophy and each unique design takes luxury to a new level. The provenance and traceability of the materials used in Freya Rose designs and the people she works with are fundamental to her business philosophy. Highly skilled craftsmen and specialist jewellers work alongside her to meticulously handcraft every style over an extensive period of time, transforming them into sculptural, wearable works of art. These are unique investment pieces and because they are handcrafted, no two pairs will ever be the same. The Freya Rose creation process showcases an unparalleled artistry and craftsmanship passed down and honed through generations. The expertise, passion and knowledge of these artists are incomparable.
Hand Made Shoes
Freya Rose has worked alongside her artisan shoe couturiers in Spain for over 10 years, considering them part of the Freya Rose family and knowing each and every person that turns her designs into a reality. With a diligent approach to perfecting lines and fit whilst exploring new techniques and discovering the finest materials, Freya spends significant time with her craftsmen to perfect her designs.
Using only the finest Italian silks and softest leathers to give her designs the luxurious quality they are acclaimed for, Freya Rose incorporates ergonomically perfected memory foam insole padding and leather soles for extra comfort. This focus on craftsmanship comes from her resolute belief that luxurious style should always be coupled with maximised comfort.
Unique Jewelled heels
Freya Rose’s signature jewelled heels and jewellery are responsibly sourced in Bali, where she has also worked with the same family for 10 years, now employing 10 jewellers.
Every part of the ethically sourced shell is carefully cleaned, cut and polished before being hand inlaid by experienced artisans to create unique statement designs.
Freya Rose believes that preserving and supporting these ancestral craft techniques is essential in a fast, modern world where globalisation degrades these ancient practices and often exploits those involved in the process.
SIGNATURE MOTHER OF PEARL HEEL
Freya Rose’s historical knowledge and long-term passion for fine jewellery led to a Mother of Pearl heel becoming the signature of Freya Rose’s exquisite designs. A rare and beautiful natural resource used for generations, its lustrous quality has been a desirable element in jewellery making for thousands of years. Each piece of Mother of Pearl is individually and carefully hand cut, before being applied to the heel with resin. As a material it is exceptionally durable, and used on the heel of the shoe means they will remain clean and unlikely to damage easily. Should you wish to dye your shoes after your wedding, the heel remains intact and looks fabulous contrasted with a darker colour.
