Idea

Founded in 2006, by Sven Segal, Po-Zu’s mission is to be kind to your feet without compromising on aesthetics and ethics.

Po-Zu, has been ranked no. 1 by the Ethical Shoe Brand by thegoodshoppingguide.com for 11 years running, along with multiple sustainability awards: Best Ethical Fashion Brand 2017 - Fashion Worked Awards, and Entrepreneur of the Year 2013 - PEA People and Environment Achievement Awards.

The company has recently developed a co-branded range of footwear under license with a major film franchise, strengthening Po-Zu’s profile in the footwear market, by using sustainable materials and handcrafting the shoes in Portugal to make a highly-authentic, screen-accurate footwear based on the footwear worn by some of the main characters in the films.

The appointment of Safia Minney MBE in January 2017 as Managing Director of Po-Zu, founder of Fair Trade fashion pioneer, People Tree, brings extensive experience to develop the company and ethical supply chains.

Po-Zu has seen a 100% YOY monthly revenue increase with £174k in web sales in the last quarter vs. £96k in the previous year. (The company was operating at -£96k loss to end April 2017).

The money raised will help fund further international expansion, the set-up of a US distribution channel, and an ethical footwear line made in Sri Lanka, using Fair Trade Rubber and organic cotton. Commercial loans exist.
