“Little by little, one walks far.” That’s the motto of Fortress of Inca, and appropriately so. Fortress of Inca is a footwear and accessories brand that is dedicated to fair trade and empowering the people who make their goods.
They take steps each day to inspire others to do good. Their mission is to use transparent, ethical methods along with high-quality, sustainable materials to produce valuable products. Fortress of Inca believes that each individual involved in the production process of a good is just as important as the customer who will wear it.
Its mission is to use transparent, ethical methods along with high-quality, sustainable materials to produce valuable products. Because of this, Fortress of Inca audits and investigates each factory and workshop that makes the shoes and accessories.
In a time when cheap goods drive much of commerce, why does Fortress of Inca care so much about fair wages and safe working conditions? “Well, there are several reasons, but mainly cause we sleep better at night knowing that the people we are working with to create shoes, boots, and accessories are not being taken advantage of. It is our promise to them and our promise to you, the consumer, that every step in the process of making the product you buy has been ethically considered.”
Leather goods from Fortress of Inca are beyond gorgeous—they’re hand-made in Peru by people who earn fair, living wages. Fortress of Inca proves that doing good never goes out of style.
