Last & Loom

Last & Loom is a small and highly skilled footwear brand from New Zealand's north island and founded by Hemi Pou. This small batch designer of finely crafted boots and shoes is guided by two main principles. Firstly, that less is more. Stripping a product back to its core form and function, removing pointless embellishments in a quest for simplicity. Equally important to Hemi is to keep manufacturing of high quality goods within his community and to work together to support one another within it. A belief that products have a genuine purpose beyond mere profit, using the highest ethical manufacturing practices from partners that share a commitment that all workers be treated fairly and with dignity.
