I get such a kick out of dealing with people, anywhere, who love what they do. I had some “issues” last week on my flight to Orlando and dealt with one after another VERY pleasant and helpful Southwest employees – at 5:00 AM, no less. I couldn’t help but smile, and as corny as it sounds, felt so happy for humanity. There is almost nothing I love more than supporting a company and people who love their work, which is why I try to support smaller, independent designers as much as financially possible.
Which leads me to Sabah. I hadn’t heard of the brand until Cola commented about them on my espadrilles post, but I went to look immediately, and fell in love with the photo above of the “makers” beaming with pride at their work. Looking at them makes ME smile.
And the shoes are nothing to scoff at either. I love their simplicity, tradition, and focus on quality; they look like a great shoe for travel, especially, and life, in general. AND, Sabah allows you to order two sizes for only an additional $15 return shipping so you can choose the size that fits you the best without having to pay for two sizes up front. Brilliant. And something I wish more clothing designers and manufacturers did.
That green is so appealing!! Of course I would probably go for black, or a more “nude” brown color, but the colors are really beautiful for spring.
What do you think of Sabah shoes? Which companies/designers do you try to support because of their excellent customer service, and pride in their work? Any local designers you’d love to share?
