Bryr Studio Footwear
454 Henry Street

Bryr means to care in Swedish and is pronounced like the English word briar. When designing my first collection I thought about what I wanted: I've always been a big flea market shopper, a vintage collector and lover of all things granny. I started designing the line by visiting an amazing 100 yr old leather factory and choosing my favorite hides. The rest just came naturally.
I believe whole-heartedly in the intrinsic value of well-made things. I believe it's about time that we treated the things we wore with as much thought as the things we eat- that they are made with fair practices, that the makers are treated with respect, that they are made to last and that they use sustainable materials. I want to make clogs that in 20 years, your daughter will pull out of the closet and want to wear because they are timeless, beautiful and well made.
My mission is also to be as real as possible with you guys. To show behind the scenes of making, designing and manufacturing. To keep growing and learning and meeting new incredible makers and collaborating with them. Because, honestly, that's what excites me, so I think it might interest you as well.
This is not a glossy company with 100 employees and a marketing department trying to seem 'authentic'. This is the real deal.
Welcome to the journey.
