Company Summary

Benjamins is a California based shoe brand that is relaunching in Paris. With 10 years of experience making our product ourselves, we are preparing to release a ready-to-wear line that is Made in France, sustainable, and unique. We are creating a line of shoes that is recyclable, and circular, with support from EcoTLC, Business France, Institut Français de la Mode, and Station F. At the end of the life of our shoes, our customers can return them to us free of charge, and in return receive 20% off of a new pair of shoes. We create a loyal customer base and simultaneously become a better more impact-free brand.

We are seeking 500.000€ for 20% equity.

Benjamins has already been featured in Los Angeles Magazine, Monocle Magazine in London, MITT in Australia, the SF Chronicle, New York Times, and many other noteworthy publications.
