Social Responsibility


The footwear brand created to be your true partner in every day
adventures! Take on challenges!


At Darkwood, social and environmental values are deeply embedded into our core business strategies.

Developing solutions that respond to market needs while at the same time remaining environmentally and socially engaged was our basic motive when we created our factory in 2004 in Bartin, one of the poorest cities of Turkey.

Since then, our initiative has created new jobs for the local population and has attracted back a dynamic workforce that had left the town for opportunities in bigger cities.

We make sure that our employees’ working conditions are close to European standards in the footwear industry and we provide compensations and benefits that are much higher than the Turkish market level.

All these measures have allowed us to attract the best footwear specialists in Turkey as well as to help develop Bartin’s local economy.
