dusq has been founded in 2019 by Louise Boeree and her former businesspartner. After suffering a hard time during the corona crisis, which had unfortunately led to a bankruptcy, dusq has managed to make a restart with Maiko, owner of Kidzpiration.
The brand continues to develop sustainable bags, shoes, accessories and baby- and kids apparel.
All products are developed in the Netherlands and produced in Portugal.

sustainable products, for lasting memories
from the materials and manufacturers, to the products and the packaging.sustainability is our driving force.
PET is the most popular plastic in the world. Every year 1.5 billion tons of PET is used for water bottles, which uses 18 million barrels of oil and 1,300 billion litres of water. And … only 5% is recycled! It’s high time to do our bit and recycle some of those bottles with our products made from recycled PET canvas.
Our eco leather is alive; it changes colour due to sunlight and grows older gracefully with regular use. Eco leather, or vegetable tanned and coloured leather, does not stay flawless and smooth, and no hide is the same. These characteristics and the amount of use create unique products that literally carry precious memories along with them.
Leather is a natural material and we advise that you don’t let it get too wet. We understand that it is difficult to prevent being caught in unexpected rain showers, so we recommend that you treat your leather product with a water-repellent spray before the first use (and then every three or four weeks as maintenance). For example: We recommend ‘Saphir’s Super Invulner Spray’ or ‘Collonil 1909 Supreme Protect Spray’.
If your product does get wet in the rain, do not use artificial heat to dry products. Simply let it dry in the air and keep it away from radiators or heaters. Direct heat will cause the leather to dry out. Has the leather unfortunately dried out? Then you can apply leather lotion to rehydrate your product.
Care for your leather products every 8-12 weeks. A conditioner acts like a moisturiser for your leather. Leather will dry out over time and the conditioner will help it to retain its moisture and suppleness. To reduce scratches and small stains from everyday use, we recommend moisturising the leather with a special nourishing cream available at any shoe repair shop. For example: ‘Saphir Pate de Luxe wax’, which is 100% natural and contains seven different types of animal, plant and mineral wax.
When using new leather care products, always test the product on a hidden area of your dusq product before applying it to the entire product. Keep your leather products in a protective bag when not in use, away from moisture and variations in heat or cold.
Our canvas is made from recycled PET and is a strong but soft material. To clean this material, we recommend using a soft cloth moistened with a small amount of mild hand washing detergent (without bleach!) to rub the area gently. Don’t rub too hard to avoid damaging the material. Allow the material to air dry and repeat if necessary.

choosing the correct shoe size
dusq’s shoes have a very flexible sole, allowing the first steps to be as great as they can possibly be. The sole of the smallest sizes are made from vegetable-tanned and coloured suede, and for the larger sizes we have chosen a sole of recycled natural rubber. The shoes can be worn both inside and outside. It is not recommended to wear the shoes outside during heavy rain, or to walk through puddles, the shoes are not waterproof!
Our sizes are a guideline, therefore we recommend measuring the feet of your child to make sure you order the correct size. Use a ruler or measuring tape on a flat surface to measure the feet from the heel to the tip of the big toe.
Based on this you can determine the size of the shoes needed. We recommend to always take one centimeter more as childrens feet need space and grow fast. In case you need to choose from 2 sizes, we recommend chosing the biggest size.
For another evaluation moment the shoes’ innersoles can ben taken out. Place the foot of your child onto the innersole and determine whether the size is (still) correct for your child.
