Today Gucio celebrates his first Birthday in Australia... how exciting.. The brand itself has been on the market for much longer (23 years) and hopefully it will continue...
Looking back it feels like Gucio has been part of my life for much longer, not only for over a year. I have fallen in love with those cute, handmade leather shoes and I'm very pleased that the brand had found its fans here on the other side of the world.
A bit of a history today... How this all started... the owner and founder, Slawomir Piwowarczyk couldn't find good shoes for his children over 23 years ago, and decided to make them from scratch.. The original idea was only for the pure purpose of getting good quality shoes for his kids, but then his friends asked Slawek to make shoes for their children, and so on.. There was a demand for a product, that was never made for a commercial scale.. What I love about Gucio is that there is no big marketing campaign behind, it's word of mouth as the shoes are so good, there is no need to advertise it. They are 100% hand made out of the best quality material, Slawek buys the leather from the best tanneries in Poland and does everything from the scratch. In today's world, when a lot of things are done by the machines,the handcraft is something I really appreciate. that's one of the biggest points as why I decided to work with Slawek and promote Gucio shoes here in Australia.
Once people try it, they love it and recommend it to their friends... The time will only shows if Gucio can stay here, but i strongly believe there is a gap for this type of a product in Australia.
Gucio are hand made, Here you can see how they are made. I find it quite fascinating
Thank you for supporting my small business, it is because of you that I'm still here and I hope i can continue throughout the harder times ahead of us
