In 1918 C. Klijsen started as an independent shoemaker in the shed behind his house in Kaatsheuvel, a small town in the Netherlands.
His son H.L. Klijsen followed in his father’s footsteps and rebuilt the shed into a small factory. After the second world war the demand grew for the Klijsen’s semi-orthopedic ladies comfort shoes.
Kees Klijsen, third generation director and designer, started combining his father's knowledge with simple and pure design in the early 70's. This was the start of what the Loints of Holland are today. In 1986 the Turbo's were first presented, a unique and timeless style that is still in the collection today.
The making of Loint's means a lot of manual labour and involvement. An average Loints of Holland has 200 production actions! Because of our special ways of shoe-making, each item is individual - not made by machines, but by real people!
At Loints of Holland we make shoes that are durable with minimal environmental affects. Here’s how we contribute:
Every year hundreds of millions of shoes are being thrown away globally. Shoes of better quality and durability make these "waste mountains" smaller. One way in which Loints of Holland brand helps reduce this problem of global waste is to manufacture products that offer repairing and resoling. This feature allows your shoes to be worn even longer!
The origin of the raw materials is very important. Are these manufacturers working in a clean way? How do they treat their waste? Loints of Holland works with suppliers from Western-Europe who are guided by strict European Laws. Our tanneries do not use Benzedrine and pcp's and have extensive water-clearing installations. For years now, the manufacturers of our PU-outsoles do not use freon.
Most Loint's designs are simple and unlined: this saves glues, lining leather and labor, thus energy. Unnecessary and artificial materials are left out.
