In 2009, two university friends decided to launch their own shoe brand called Faguo ! Both friends were fascinated in Fashion and business and they began Faguo even before their university studies were finished.
The initial shoes were sold at their friends appartment and the 5000 pairs they made for the first six months were all snapped up within two weeks ! - Over the next few years the company began to sell their distinctive footwear abroad, not only in France. Then in 2011 they launched their first accessory collection. This included, wallets, scarves, belts and a range of luggage.
Material: Leather and suede Colour: Tawny brown and navy White rubber trim and brown laces
Even today the shoe collections remain central to the brand and the little button attached to every shoe and accessory as detailing is the characteristic mark of Faguo.
In 2014 Faguo celebrates its 5th Birthday and French Blossom is excited to now become a partner with the French brand.
Faguo takes a strong stance on its ability to make siginificant environmental improvements though their business. For every pair of Faguo shoes or accessories sold, 1 tree is planted either in France or Belgium. So far they have helped plant 300,000 new trees creating 70 young forests.
The faguo shoe boxes can also cleverly be recycled in bird boxes !
