Bed Stü Handbags, Shoes & Belts

All of our leather shoes and accessories are created with environmental consciousness in mind. We use the whole hide, imperfections and all, and each piece uses only the most natural and organic ingredients possible in the construction process.

We honor the craft of traditional shoemaking, while striving to be 100% natural and organic in the process.

Hand-Made, by Real People

The human ingredient is the soul of BED|STÜ. Starting with cutting the raw leather to the final finishing process, each piece is stitched, woven, dyed, and finished by hand in the spirit of the cobbler tradition.


Even our most intricate designs are meticulously hand-tooled, with incredible precision and skill. Though time consuming, the outcome is a beautiful, carefully crafted piece of art with a human touch that makes each of these pieces one-of-a-kind.

Inspired by the rugged and resilient streets of Bedford Stuyvesant, NY, our family-owned operation opened for business near Downtown LA just over 25 years ago. We have now grown into a diverse, creative, and fiercely independent group of individuals with a shared pride in creating quality leather products that boast a love for heritage and tradition, authentic construction, and artisan finishes. Our handcrafted line of vegetable tanned leather footwear and accessories is like each member of the BED|STÜ Family: Genuine, Unique, and Naturally Imperfect.

What We Stand For

Our philosophy is simple: to create sustainable products that are made to last, using only the most natural ingredients. It's better for us, our workers, and our planet.


BED|STÜ stands for authenticity. To truly honor the craft of shoemaking, we defy the trend of mass production and take our time creating quality leather products that are built to last, never compromising on quality. Each piece possesses true BED|STÜ craftsmanship and proudly represents the diversity and identity of those that create and wear our products.


Just as no two fingerprints are alike, each BED|STÜ product is distinct. We work with natural leathers and age our materials through timeless proprietary processes. Each piece is handcrafted: woven, sewn, washed, and finished. The human component also contributes to slight variations, making each product truly one-of-a-kind.


Our leathers and other materials are natural and free-range whenever possible. Working with these natural materials and old-school construction means that slight variations in texture and color are common. The true beauty of our products is found in these natural imperfections.
