Hi there! We are Ball Pagès,
We design, manufacture and distribute traditional footwear with the aim of maintaining Mediterranean traditions alive, sharing not only the product but also our “savoir faire”, and taking it beyond its natural frontiers.
We are well aware of the impact our activity has on our clients, employees, local communities, the environment and society in general; it is for this reason that we support sustainable production and a clear conscience.
SOLIDARITY AND SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION
We work with Kakolum (Senegal) to manufacture the “cordelli” and the money from the “Give Back” programme returns to Kafountine so that it can be reinvested in projects devoted to collectives of women in the rural Senegalese community.
COMMITTED WITH THE ENVIRONMENT
Our products are manufactured with the absolute minimum of chemical products; our basic raw material, sisal, is a 100% natural fibre; the process for its transformation is also natural and done by hand.
We maintain CO2 emissions at a minimum; in our case, they are limited to the transport of the products. The process of design, manufacture and distribution of Ball Pagès, leaves virtually no waste (zero residue), minimizing our contribution to global warming.
SALARIES AND SAFE WORKING CONDITIONS
We guarantee fair salaries, safe working conditions and social support programmes. We defend all those who participate in any part of the process of manufacture of a pair of Ball Pagès, working on a chain of transparent supply.
Ball Pagès slippers are handmade in Barcelona, using the ancestral savoir faire which we learned in the heart of Ibiza. We have modified, and updated the original knowledge, and we continue to respectfully experiment; it is our way of preserving tradition and at the same time supporting the craftsmen in the rest of the world.
THE FUTURE IS FEMALE!
We are a brand which is committed to the empowerment of women, we want to contribute to a better future for our workers, helping to protect them from impoverishment, investing in training and health. We have the power to make positive changes!
