The story behind them... "Her name was Anita and she was the hottest mum in all of southern Sweden in the 1970’s. While smoking Camel she screamed at her kids until her curlers fell out and just looked fabulous in her white high-heeled clogs."
Why they were created... "One summer day in 2006 we found the shoes she wore (300 pairs of red, white and black beautiful clogs from the 70’s) in the basement of an old clog factory in the neighboring village and brought them to Stockholm. So for all these people that shared our love for Anita’s wooden shoes and for ourselves we started Swedish Hasbeens....
Swedish Hasbeens goals and standards... "Our ambition is to continue to release more incoherent and fun shoes and stuff inspired by Hasbeens that once ruled the planet...
They are made of ecologically prepared natural grain leather, it’s the most beautiful and the highest quality, and at the same time it's environmentally friendly...
They are still handmade with respect for people and the environment in the old traditional way, and in small factories that have made shoes for decades. Our production methods and material are kind to nature and people. Happy toffels make happy people. "
