Jonas UNGER c/o BIRD PRODUCTION traveled to the beautiful Italian region of Le March. This is where the TOD’S factory is located, including the studios in which its artisans lovingly handcraft the shoes of the renowned brand. Jonas Unger photographed them in the charming landscape surrounding the factory.
TOD’S : “Tod’s has always been about the human touch, from the employees in our factories whose grandparents worked at Tod’s, to the associates in our shops all around the world. The ‘Made By Humans’ project recounts the various stages in creating Tod’s products, honoring the art of craftsmanship and the artisans who make it all possible. Community and trust have always been at the heart of our company, because we are the ones who make who we are, today even more than ever.
With the slogan ‘Made By Humans’, Tod’s tells Italian stories of creativity and craftsmanship. The Italian region Le Marche with its stunning nature is home to the Tod’s factory and our artisans. Knowledge is handed down through generations, and their spirit is our secret ingredient. Photographer Jonas Unger created a joyful series of portraits shot on a hillside close to the factory, placing the artisans center stage, right where they belong.”
