The Prada Group, of which Church’s is part of, reveals a new perspective of itself on csr.pradagroup.com, the website dedicated to Corporate Social Responsibility.
Stories of passion and commitment, of creativity, of respect for the places, of open dialogue with local communities, of restoration and enhancement of the artistic legacy.
A perspective heretofore unseen, whose protagonists are the skilled hands of artisans, the multifaceted expressions of culture, the reshaping of landscapes, the partners along the production chain and the people all over the world who, with us, dedicate their daily efforts to achieving excellence.
The founding family’s shoemaking roots date back to 1675 as artisanal traditions and an unwavering dedication to quality and craftsmanship have been passed down from one family member and artisan to the next – a heritage of excellence that gives us our staying power, making our clientele among the most loyal. Clients, with years of firsthand experience in the reliability and excellence of the Church’s product, readily convey their appreciation of an exquisitely made shoe to sons and grandsons alike, introducing them to the brand as if bequeathing a well-kept secret. The appeal of Church’s quite literally spans generations, bearing further testament to the versatility of our collections, attracting the seasoned buyer as easily as the dress shoe dilettante.
Church’s shoes, on average, take about eight weeks and more than 250 manual operations to produce, constructed with the world-renowned Goodyear method that allows for refurbishment – even the most worn in pair will come back looking like new. In terms of aesthetic, the classic elegance of their design – some models have been around for over a century – is a trend that never goes out of style.
The integrity of Church’s, both as a brand and as a product, lies in its timelessness and its ability to transcend time, age and generations.
