Our story started one summers afternoon in the garden of a small cottage in the Essex countryside with a coffee and a few biscuits, Jason sat dreaming up ideas of how to create something special, something that would take his grandfathers values and his creativity to make. Here we sit a year later with the birth of Fawns, a luxury footwear brand dedicated to producing luxury, handcrafted footwear at accessible prices. Fawns has big plans for the future and will continue to grow. Jason envisions Fawns being far more than a footwear brand, with a timeless lifestyle brand in sight and a burning desire to make his grandfather proud, Fawns sets sail into the next chapter.
Albert was a huge part of Jason's life from a young age and became so much more than a grandfather, he became a mentor and father. His grandfather Albert was quite the successful businessman himself, after WW2 he created a very successful bakery before selling and investing in grocery stores. Having such admiration for his grandfather Jason wanted to follow in Albert's footsteps and create his own legacy.
We hope that through this website you get a feel for the passion and drive that we all share. Fawns is more than just a company and we want it to be a real experience everyone can feel apart of. A lifestyle brand you can shop for years to come and share your memories with generations to come. Footwear which takes you through a long and fruitful life, filled with adventure. Fawns has plans to reduce its carbon footprint in the near future, we will be working with organisations to make sure Fawns plays a role in donating a percentage of profits to help our planets ecosystems".
Cheers to Jason's grandfather Albert
From Jason Ballantyne, Founding Director
“It's been an extremely rewarding process, from the first sketches to our first trade show, I hope everyone can see this brands meaning and what a labour of love it has been. I wanted to thank everyone for their continued support and for sharing our journey with us. Hopefully I will get the chance to thank everyone in person and will continue to work around the clock to produce quality footwear and to pursue our original dream of becoming a timeless British lifestyle brand".
