Butterfly Twists (they make ballet pumps) are continuously posting on Facebook about how each of the (probably hundreds of thousands) pairs of shoes they make are “Handmade” and “Made by Hand.” I’ve been leaving comments on their posts asking for information as to how many pairs of hands each pair passes through before they are ready for sale and whether or not they would describe their premises as a “factory” but they have not replied. This is despite the fact that they have replied to comments asking things like-“Do you do these in this colour?” or “Do you have stockists in the US?” etc, etc…
This makes me fume. They are a manufacturing concern that is stealing all of our halos here without even feeling the slightest bit of guilt about it.
Here is their link so you can see for yourselves. https://butterflytwists.com/crafted-to-fit-your-day
Note how the photography makes it look like they are appearing on The Sewing Bee
