Custom Territory
is a collective of shoemakers, designers and wearers that aims to decentralise the global shoe industry into local territories where boundaries between designing, making and wearing can blur. In collaboration with local actors
Custom Territory
transforms locally available resources into custom creations to generate a contextual design language. Each territory represents a different city and develops into its own aesthetic. Through this process
Custom Territory
draws Retake-Remake-Reuse patterns that reconnects materials, expertise and infrastructure.

Custom Territory
originated in the
Circle Sector
design lab of the
LUCA school of arts
(Campus C-mine) in collaboration with
and the support of
Circular Flanders
