Our new domain is Nonleather.co.uk
Holding page for a wholesale source of leather alternatives made in the UK
The standard industrial code is 46420 - Wholesale of clothing and footwear.
The registered office is the home address of one of the director's mums, used to try to keep wholesale and retail separate; there isn't a wholesale warehouse at the registered office.
There may be a prestashop site linked to this domain some time in late 2016 that can tell you what is in stock on the shelf, rather than being made to order with whatever time delay such as 8-12 weeks for goodyear welted footwear. Talking of which, the minimum order is 12 pairs per style and colour when made to order; quicker if we have any in stock for retail.
We can tag products "made in London"
Three products are available
Goodyear welted vegan footwear made in the UK
Goodyear welted footwear with microfibre tops and three layer plastic soles that mould to the shape of your feet. This is made possible by sewing the soles to the sides of the shoes to allow more insole layers - hence the term "welt" for the bit of plastic that goes round the side and gets sewn to the side of the footwear.
Vegan belts made in the UK
We expect to have a range of made to order belts and belt kits available on this site in summer 2016. The styles will be plain, without sewing, one inch to one and a half inches wide by default. The microfibre material is expensive, but hard-wearing and absorbent.
The belts are already available part-made, but costings on large orders - anything over 50 - will take a bit of extra work to check wether they are competative.
Microfibre 2mm thick available by the meter or centimeter.
We have 2mm thick microfibre in stock with a slightly grained breathable smooth top layer. We can quote to sell it per meter or part of a meter, either pricing per linear meter or square meter. Stock is held in London SW14, but there is no show room; we could send a square inch or so as a sample. Delivery of cylinder-shaped parcels is specialised and may be cheapest if the material is foulded double for transit, or if you pick it up in the UK at a UPS parcel shop.
We can work-out postage costs based on weight - best prices are often on 30kg cartons and a welted boot or shoe weighs about 1.25 kg. Boxed boots are more bulky and expensive to post, but considerably cheaper in handling at either end.
Payments to our sterling bank account by bank transfer, please; payments from euro or other currencies via Transferwise are welcome, paid when the the boots are packed and ready to send.
Please phone the retail number on 0208 286 9947 for details.
There is no own-brand but we may be able to do something with pants to poverty in future
