Artistry & Craftsmanship
All of our shoes are fully crafted in Italy by renowned artisans who specialize in luxury shoes, and have committed their craft to the luxury footwear industry. The factory in which our artisans perform their craft is multi-generational and family-owned who work primarily with established fashion houses, and are well-respected in the industry. They are recognized for their attention to detail of products that involves a high level of intricacy.
The art of craftsmanship has become increasingly rare to discover over the years. From generation to generation, families that hone special skills in various industries, traditionally pass these skills to their children as heir to the craft and family business. With the footwear business, we knew this craft is something that we wanted for our products in parallel to the creativity of our designs.
Amehra is pronounced as "AH-MEHR-AH". The name represents the dynamic background and creative minds of the brother and sister designer duo, Arash and Mehrnoush
Sizing & Fit
All of our shoes follow European sizing. The lasts we use are designed to be true to size. To gain a quick understanding around our sizing, please view the sizing guide listed within each shoe description.
Great question! We understand it may not be the easiest when shopping online, and we're happy to help you. Our shoes fit true to size. If you are between sizes, we recommend selecting a half a size up. We encourage you to reach out to us for further help with sizing, prior to placing your order. We want to make sure the correct size is initially selected to avoid unnecessary costs related to returns.
Due to the Italian sizing and lasts we use, they may naturally fit a bit snug in the beginning. The shoes will mold to the width of your foot over time with every wear. The shoes will not stretch in the length. Depending on the material and product style, the timing of breaking the shoe in will vary.
Ethics & Sustainability
Fair and respectful treatment amongst everyone we work with is a common foundation with all involved. We spoke and met with many factories, and it was no surprise who we really wanted to work with after the in-person visits. We are humbled to have these prestigious artisans bring the beauty and magic to our products. The People we work with represents one of our key elements for sustainable growth, which can be read about on our Responsibility page. Furthermore, our Supplier Code of Conduct is accessible for all to reference.
We knew that if our shoes are to be made by some of the best hands in the industry, we had to have materials from responsible suppliers that line up with our strategy focused on sustainable growth. We worked with our network to gain insights and identify the sources who align with our forward-thinking mindset that produce some of the most coveted material and finishes. Our suppliers focus on elements of responsible practices, quality, and innovation. Several of these materials include calf leather, goat leather, kid suede, satin and coveted strass crystals.
Absolutely. When we started our design process, we knew that Amehra would not be considered without the element of Responsibility. We actively source from suppliers that have obtained, or are in the process of obtaining certifications, pushing forward and striving to contribute to social, environmental and overall responsible efforts. Each product that you are interested in will include information regarding responsible elements within the Product Details.
Please note that our sustainable elements also refer to the responsible production processes that have been achieved by our suppliers through specialty certifications validated via their audits.
We currently do not have Vegan as an offering in our collections. However, we do have PETA-Approved Vegan sample material in hand and have been reviewing these. We have several preliminary designs identified as part of our introduction with the use of Vegan material.
Our materials are from tanneries and specialty suppliers located throughout Italy. We source our materials from these responsible suppliers due to their specialized skills and offerings in developing the innovative and beautiful material.
Our shoe box is FSC certified and recyclable. We include the custom dust bag within every box and encourage our customers to utilize this bag in order to protect the product(s).
The following are the certificates from the suppliers and relative materials taken into consideration for creating our shoes.
The ISO 9001 certification is a voluntary standard aimed at improving the quality of production systems and efficiency in the realization of final products. It allows an organization to commit to constantly improving the efficiency of its production processes and guaranteeing high quality products. This recognition helps ensure that customers get consistent, good-quality products and services. [SDG Goals 1,9,12,14]
A voluntary standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) that validates a company is aiming to reduce the environmental impact of its activities and constantly pursue improvements. This standard enables an approach for our suppliers to establish their environmental objectives, monitor their activities to ensure their obligations are met, and continuously improve in a proactive manner.
[SDG Goals 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9,12,13,14,15]
This certification recognizes organizations that have enabled an occupational health and safety management system that provides safe and healthy workplaces, prevent work-related injury, and continually improve its health and safety performance. This includes promoting and protecting the physical and mental health of workers. The purpose of an OH&S management system is to provide a framework for managing risks, eliminate hazards, and identify opportunities for improvement through effective, preventative and protective measures. [SDG Goals 3,5,8,9,10,11,16]
The SA8000 Standard is the world's leading social certification program that provides a holistic framework allowing organizations to demonstrate the fair treatment to workers. It is a recognized approach to appropriately manage working conditions and worker well-being. This is based on the internationally recognized standards of decent work, including standards set forth by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO conventions and national laws.
LWG is an international, not-for-profit organization that is responsible for the world's largest leather sustainability program. They have identified environmental best practices in the industry and provided guidelines for continual improvement, while offering the ability to asses the environmental performance of leather manufacturing facilities, allowing for certification to be provided to those that meet the LWG standards. The majority of our leather suppliers have either received certification, or are in the process of being audited in order to obtain their LWG certification. [SDG Goals 3,6,12,13,14,17]
A worldwide leading textile standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria. The requirements are set to ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing. This helps ensure that the organic cotton is sourced in the most ethical and sustainable way. Our primary satin supplier is well respected in the industry and have become a known leader for their beautiful quality and colors of their products. They have been active in increasing their options of GOTS satin, recognizing both the positive impacts and demand in the market. [Not all satin colors may be available with GOTS certifications at the time of production.]
A set of standards that ensures products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. The FSC provides a foundation for all forest management standards globally. Our paper and packaging suppliers have the FSC certification. [SDG Goals 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,12,13,14,15,16,17]
All the materials used in products bearing this label are sourced from forests that have been audited by an independent third party to confirm they are managed according to FSC's rigorous social and environmental standards. Of all the FSC labels, FSC 100% contributes most directly to FSC's objective-forests for all, forever-and is therefore the highest mark of distinction for certified products.
Products that bear this label have been verified as being made from 100% recycled content (either post-consumer or pre-consumer reclaimed materials.) The use of FSC Recycled products can help to alleviate the pressure of demand on sources of virgin material, thereby helping to protect the world's forests.
Products that bear this label are made using a mixture of materials from FSC-certified forests, recycled materials, and/or FSC controlled wood. While controlled wood is not from FSC certified forests, it mitigates the risk of the material originating from unacceptable sources.
The Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a voluntary European environmental certification system for companies that commit to assessing and improving the environmental performance of their production systems and communicating this to their stakeholders. It is a commitment to setting environmental impact improvement goals on a regular basis, enabled by an environmental management system to minimize harmful effects on the environment from their activities, continually improving their environmental performance.
