The Bed|Stu Blog is a way for you to step inside our world and see what makes us tick. We hope to inspire you as we seek to shed light on inspiring crafts in design, style, photography, food and drink, music, and more.
Bed|Stü derives from the unabashed streets of Bedford Stuyvesant – a gritty neighborhood in central Brooklyn. Formed in 1930, the neighborhood’s name itself is an extension of the Village of Bedford, which was eventually expanded to include the area of Stuyvesant Heights. “Stuyvesant” comes from Peter Stuyvesant, the last governor of the colony of New Netherland.
Our unapologetic line of boots, shoes, and accessories boasts a vintage style that reflects both the resilience and character of the tough streets from which their design derives. We age our natural materials to perfection through proprietary processes and unique hand finishes – giving them their timeless yet modern appeal.
Bed|Stü Cobbler Series bucks the mass-production trend, holding to a day and age when shoes were meticulously crafted by the hands of a cobbler. With extreme attention to detail, each pair was custom made for the perfect fit. And staying true to its name, our Cobbler collection is hand-crafted by a small team of skilled cobblers to preserve the true artisanship and heritage of shoe-making.
