Where we make our shoes

Suppliers

At Clarks, we believe in building long-term relationships – ones that not only benefit our business, but the people who make our shoes. That’s why over 80% of our footwear production comes from suppliers we have worked with for more than 5 years and some of them for much longer. In 2018, approximately 80% of our footwear products were sourced from directly managed suppliers, with the remainder sourced through specialist agents. We do also sell some handbags and accessories, but these are a small part of our total business. Most of the production takes place in Asia, with a small percentage of production in Europe. In most of these factories the facilities are shared with production for other brands and customers.

To meet our commitment to increased transparency, we have published a list of suppliers used in the production of the majority of our products during 2018. If you would like the information provided in an alternative format please contact csr@clarks.com

The list includes the footwear suppliers we directly manage, who produce approximately 80% of our branded footwear, as well as the majority of footwear and non-footwear suppliers that are used through agents and licensees.

We are proud to support the Open Apparel Registry and have uploaded this supplier information to their site, where you can find further information.
