Who we are

Raquel Brito

CMO - Chief Marketing Officer

Hey shoe lovers! I'm super excited to tell you a bit about myself on my website.

I come from the awesome city of Rio de Janeiro, and I'm happily married to Rodrigo and a proud mom to Benjamin. They bring so much joy to my life!

I've studied Business Administration and even did some extra courses in Business Management and Project Management. 

After working for 18 years and achieving success, I made a big decision in 2018. I moved to another country to support my husband in his career.

Fast forwards to 2020, I decided to turn my lifelong passion for fashion into a mission. My goal? Empowering women to feel confident, fabulous, and utterly themselves, from head to toe. And thus, the journey with Semente Shoes began.

  

Today, I use all my knowledge to run Semente Shoes strategically. 

  

So, let me share a little secret with you — it's the work I'm most proud of, and every day I learn something new from it.

Nice to meet you.

How it is produced

Handmade with Love

Step behind the scenes of our craftsmanship, where each pair of our shoes comes to life in the intimate studios of southern Brazil.

Nestled in Novo Hamburgo, the esteemed 'shoe city' of Rio Grande do Sul, our production process is a homage to the artistry that defines great footwear brands. Here, we uphold the time-honored tradition of manual craftsmanship, skillfully passed down through generations.

Our dedicated artisans, driven by passion and precision, meticulously craft each shoe by hand. Their commitment ensures that every detail is a testament to their expertise, resulting in a product that exudes quality and artistry.

In a time when preserving regional value chains is paramount, we take pride in supporting the local economy and fostering the continuation of these artisanal traditions.

With every pair, we not only offer an exquisite addition to your wardrobe but also an ode to the rich heritage and craftsmanship of Novo Hamburgo.

Welcome to the refined world of Semente Shoes, where tradition meets innovation, and every step is a celebration of artful creation.

A sustainable future

All of our fabrics are purchased from the textile industry surplus.

What would be discarded in nature, we transform into our Semente Shoes, with love and creativity.

Our prints are chosen one by one to match all styles. Any time!

Upcycling is not a fashion.

It's a lifestyle.​
