The reasons why Libertad Avenue chooses to manufacture locally
This was one of the first decisions and one of the clearest since the beginning of Libertad Avenue: that the manufacturing would be carried out in proximity, as close to 0 Km as possible. Some may wonder why this is so important, but the answer is very simple:
Manufacturing in proximity is better.
And it is so for many reasons. The first, being close to the producer: speaking the same language, getting to know each other personally, being able to visit them during the process. The second, the reduction of carbon emissions in transport. The third, to increase the traceability of the product ensuring that all processes are carried out in the most sustainable way possible. And there is even more: Fostering local industry, creating and maintaining jobs here, where we need them. Local and proximity consumption is a key element to reactivate the economy from consumption and promote more sustainable and self-sufficient societies.
For all these reasons, at Libertad Avenue we decided that the manufacture of our footwear and accessories would be carried out entirely in the Iberian Peninsula. The vast majority in Spain, and we even have some suppliers from the Basque Country. We consider that being 100% sustainable is not possible, but it is in fact a utopia towards which we can walk, step by step. And so we keep on walking.
