UK Husband and wife team Uptown Yardie step up to help create more job opportunities in Jamaica.
Uptown Yardie is a shoe and lifestyle brand that has been going for just about two and a half years and currently making middle to high end shoes which are manufactured in Northampton, England, the heart of the British shoe making industry.
“Our style is very much inspired and influenced by our Jamaica heritage and our Yardie boot, which is our version of a desert boot plays homage to this.”
Natasha – One half of Uptown Yardie goes on to say: “In 2015 when we first started talking about a range for Uptown Yardie Jamaica, it made complete sense to refresh our existing Yardie boot design and have it manufactured in Jamaica. By giving the production contract to a Jamaican factory is a great way of Jamaica taking ownership of a shoe they have made world famous and creating employment opportunities along the way.”
