I am filling in a few days at Plagg, the great little boutique at 41, rue Charlot, which features all Scandinavian designers, the majority of whom practice an eco-friendly approach, and they are having great sales by the way...hint hint to any Parisians reading this and in the mood for shopping...However, wanted to share a new discovery, shoe designers PJUX, who design sustainable shoes using vegetable tanned and chrome-free leathers, wood is solid beech wood which is sourced from sustainable forests in Europe. The designers live and work in Copenhagen but the shoes are made in Spain--which is not only famous for its long history of quality shoe production, but this is where they found an artisan shoemaker who would adhere to their eco-requests. The A/W 07 collection featured short boots (bottines in french; i love that word), heels and flats that have a semi 1940s or 50s feel. Also a line of mens wear is available. Plagg has a great pair of the black leather bottines available..I think the only store in Paris that carries them as well or visit their website www.pjux.com
