Inspired by the resilient streets of Bedford Stuyvesant, New York, BED|STÜ opened for business in a small Los Angeles warehouse in 1995. They believe in taking their time to create products that are as individual as those who wear them. They buck the trend of mass production to ensure their products are made the right way, honoring the cobbler and the craft. They do not compromise on quality.
Their unapologetic line of footwear and accessories is like each member of the BED|STÜ Family: GENUINE | UNIQUE | IMPERFECT.
At BED|STÜ they honor the craft. Their products are made using traditional techniques: Goodyear welted, hand-woven, hand-sewn, hand-finished, washed, and tumbled. They use natural leathers and a vegetable-based tanning process when available.
Just like no two fingerprints are the same, each BED|STÜ product is distinct. The handcrafted nature of their shoes and accessories make each piece unique.
