In 1853, Aigle revolutionised the world of footwear by using rubber as its core material for boot manufacture. Boots continue to be made by hand at Ingrandes, France near Chatellerault.
From preparation through to finishing, each stage takes place under the watchful eye of specialists. Firstly, the natural rubber mix endows the boots with all of their characteristics (suppleness, waterproofness, sturdiness, comfort, etc.) Then the parts are assembled by hand on an aluminium last. The 3rd stage in the process involves vulcanisation of the boots in an autoclave at 140° to give them their definitive shape. Finally, each boot is carefully inspected to ensure that a high-performance, high-quality product is obtained.

Established since 2007, Izzy Lane is a cutting edge and unique ethical luxury brand and has established it’s credentials as one of the leading ethical brands in the world and the leading voice of animal welfare in the fashion industry.

Isobel Davies, a life-long vegetarian and animal lover was always confronted with the argument that sheep would not exist if we didn’t eat them and wanted to demonstrate a different model whereby sheep could viably exist.
Izzy Lane have shown their collection at London Fashion Week and also won various prestigious awards including: RSPCA Good Business Award and the RE New Designer of the Year Award. They were also asked to show their collection in a catwalk show for the Queen.
They have had extensive press coverage in the Times, Sunday Times, Guardian, Independent, Telegraph, Daily Mail, You Magazine, Grazia, Marie-Claire, Cosmopolitan, Daily Express and Vogue as well as in international press and BBC and ITV and television and radio coverage.
Izzy Lane utilises the wool from their own flocks of rare breed Shetlands and Wensleydales. All the knitwear has been produced on hand-frame looms in Hawick, one of the ancient centres of the British textile industry. The Shetland wool has been processed – scoured, spun and dyed in West Yorkshire and then woven into cloth and finished in the Scottish Borders.
