It is anchored locally! In the Occitan language from Périgord (called “patois”), Souts means clog, cf. 'Mus souts n’an ni clobels, ni batto', My clogs have no nails or bat, by the great Occitan poet Pierre Boissel. The history of the brand Taise by Souts starts with the encounter of four shoe passionate people. All professionals in this field, they come from different backgrounds (creation, commercial, production, management) and their skills are complementary.
Their dream was to develop a qualitative and creative brand 100% made in France. To realize it they bought a factory in the Perigord, land of tradition which represents the art of French living, fine food (wine, truffles,
foie gras) and historic land of shoe-making. Thanks to this plant, they can manufacture and market a genuine product they are proud of. The expertise of this land has attracted longstanding brands like Hermes and Repetto. The creative team decided to revisit the Charentaise, a traditional French product. From a simple product, they made a shoe: sport outsole, quality manufactured.
Taise by Souts is part of Touba - London for AW14.
