Who we are
We are a Portuguese company with 27 years whose goal is to produce fashion footwear for men, women and children.
Throughout our activity we have been focusing our efforts on the development of competences that allow us to be different from the other brands and we consider these competences to be fundamental to our company’s success.
These are 3 items that are combined: irreverent and innovative design, comfort and the quality of the raw materials.
What we do
We develop and present our clients our own collections and we are ready to produce small quantities with short delivery dates.
This flexibility has been essential to our first brand, Eject, in order that it can be in the market and achieve the place it has in our clients’ preference.
More recently and always thinking in diversification and access to new markets, we launched a new brand, Prophecy, with the aim to complete Eject.
How we do it
We link our technical know-how to the commercial dynamic and our knowledge of the international markets to develop products that answer to the needs and expectations of our clients; using the more recent technologies in the footwear industry.
The used materials in both Eject and Prophecy are the result of researches among specialized suppliers with whom we work together.
Who we do it for
Our brands’ mission is to satisfy the needs of the consumers that search for footwear with personality.
The care with the development of unique and comfortable moulds shows the desire to achieve the irreverence allied to comfort.
The use of original materials gives their brand vigour and reflects the energy and glamour of it.
What makes us innovative
The innovation is present in all areas of the company’s activity: conception and development of product, production procedures, organization and management.
The company has tried to be modern and flexible in order to have the ability to answer to clients’ needs.
This innovation is present and shows itself in the different features of Eject’s and Prophecy’s products, concerning design, materials, colour, comfort and irreverence.
