JACQ’S STORY

JacQ aims to bring the power of faith in human kindness and believe in the beauty of meaningful giving.

Our Story

JacQ was founded in 2015 by a group of friends whose vision is to create sustainable fashion meanwhile bringing products that are trendy, comfortable, and durable to customers all around the world. Our products are designed and handcrafted in Kobe, Japan using locally-sourced and eco-friendly materials. By supporting local artisans, we enhance the cultural value and retain jobs for skilled laborers so that they can preserve their traditions. Our designs focus on safety and feet care—bringing the utmost attention to your health while not compromising the beauty of the shoe.

In addition to delivering you high-quality products and protecting our planet, we are also committed to bringing awareness to the impoverished regions of Vietnam. We promise that each full-priced item that you purchase, we will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need.

Today, you can find us in the biggest shopping malls in Vietnam and Singapore. You can also shop with us online at our website.  Thank you for always choosing JacQ!

Vision, Mission, and Core Values 

JacQ is a company that is committed to creating sustainable and stylish products that support local communities meanwhile promoting social responsibility. We do this by using vegan leather and sourcing 100% of our production from Kobe, Japan—utilizing its local resources. All of our footwear is designed and handmade by skilled artisans who craft the shoes using hand-dyed techniques. 

For each full-priced item that is sold, JacQ promises to donate a pair of shoes for an underprivileged child in Vietnam. 

We believe that fashion, sustainability, and community giving can all be achieved at once. And you can start with us.
