Não Do Brasil Is Now In Manila

Let me tell you a story about a boy named Adilson. He grew up in the depths of Minas Gerais, an arid region of Brazil. He walks barefoot and every time he would requests his mother to buy him shoes, her poor mother always answer “Não” which means “no”. He then decided to make his own. Adilson picked up colourful leather, fabric and rubber material in the impoverished districts of Belo Horizonte and created his first fair. Year after year of making new shoes for himself, his design and craftsmanship was improved, perfected, and caught the attention of others.

Eventually he called his shoes “Não” which reminded him of his mother. Today, Adilson is the head of a small business that manufactures thousands of multicoloured shoes that delights everyone who sees them. What’s more delighting is that Não is now available in the Philippines.


Unique and original in design, NÃO shoes are made completely by hand by Brazilian adults in a purely craft setting. Five workshops in different parts of Brazil work on minute detail in the production of these shoes. No less than 34 operations by seven technicians are needed to bring these footwear to form. What gives them life, however, is the energy of the artisans that is infused in every shoe that comes out of the shop.

I witnessed the launching of Não do Brasil last March 25 as they held a fashion show at SM Megamall Fashion D Atrium.
