Peterson Stoop is a genderless footwear brand based in Amsterdam, founded by designers Jelske Peterson and Jarah Stoop in 2013.
By using basic forms, a monochromatic colour pallet and a superior attention to detail the designers transform the archetypal shoe to meet Peterson Stoop’s signature requirements in FEEL, FORM and FINISH. Taking inspiration from utilitarian products and artisanal craftsmanship, the duo subtly and uniquely reevaluates pattern cutting, production techniques and proportions.
The duo’s DNA was formed by working at a shoe repair shop and a leather tannery, enriching the designers with solid knowledge of materials and durability. On 90m2 Jelske Peterson and Jarah Stoop have now created their own footwear factory in Amsterdam. Peterson Stoop’s social and environmental goals are ever evolving, they make use of the highest ethical solutions that lie within their current means.
