Inspired by the resilient streets of Bedford Stuyvesant, New York, BED|STÜ opened for business in a small Los Angeles warehouse in 1995. We believe in taking our time to create products that are as individual as those who wear them. We buck the trend of mass production to ensure our products are made the right way, honoring the cobbler and the craft. We will not compromise quality. Our unapologetic line of footwear and accessories we make is like each member of the BED|STÜ Family: GENUINE | UNIQUE | IMPERFECT.
At BED|STÜ we honor the craft. Our products are made using traditional techniques: Goodyear welted, handwoven, handsewn, washed, and tumbled. We use natural leathers, free range when possible, a vegetable based tanning process, and we hand finish our products.
Just like no two fingerprints are the same, each Bed|Stü product is distinct. The handcrafted nature of our leather shoes and accessories make each piece unique.
