Based in Birmingham, OMES is a supplier of eco-friendly wooden soles, wedges and clogs to the trade and the public. The company was founded after an encounter by a European engineer and an African shoemaker bankrupted by the combination of foreign competition, second-hand and free shoes distributed by NGOs. They setup a fair trade factory that uses sustainable raw materials and provides workers the opportunity to earn a sustainable wage to support their families.
