Our about

the story

1.Inspired by a shoemaking community

At Treec we inspire conscious fashion using using cork as main material for shoe creations.

“It all started in S. João da Madeira, a small town near Porto, north of Portugal, worldwide recognized to be home of top quality shoe making. Me and my brother Filipe inherited all the shoemaking knowledge and interest of our community – but we wanted to do it slighty different” – R. Silva (co-founder)

2. Do different. Why and how?

Why? We want to cause impact so we decided it was time to build a better future for us and our people. How? We know how to make shoes, so we started crafting footwear made with the help of our local community members and using sustainable materials with signature “made in Portugal.
