Production & Process
Our company is specialised in the production of shoes with cork insoles. It starts with the selection of high quality raw materials by our Quality Control Team. These materials are then submitted to our factories. Utilising the latest technologies, we then construct each shoe while carefully tailoring it to be the most comfortable and sustainable high quality product in the market. We believe a great pair of shoes should have maximum comfort, which is why we deeply care about achieving the highest quality in our materials and processes.
How our footwear is made
Plakton is a brand that cares for nature. Since 1995, cork has been the material that we use for the production of almost every product that we created since then on. We have always tried to make products that are comfortable, ergonomic and natural. That is who we are. The harvesting of the cork oak is an ancient process that can only (and should only) be done by experts: the descortiçadores. Manual skill and a lot of experience is required to avoid damaging the tree.
