We do things differently to offer fair prices on high-quality products. We work with the best factories and materials to create luxury, sustainable goods but skip the traditional markups.
In medieval England—when every village had a shoemaker and all shoes were made just for you—cobblers used poppy seeds and barleycorns as the units of measurement for shoemaking. One barleycorn was equal to 1/3 inch and four poppy seeds equaled one barleycorn.
In 2012, sisters Justine and Kendall Barber launched Poppy Barley because they couldn’t find anything like it. Although they were newcomers to shoemaking, Justine and Kendall were raised to be creative, ambitious, industrious and ask a lot of questions.
From Edmonton, Alberta, the sisters searched for factories that shared their vision to re-think the footwear industry. Partnering with family-owned factories, Poppy Barley started producing sustainably-made footwear and accessories. Today, Poppy Barley is driven by the relentless pursuit to re-think luxury for people and the planet. Poppy Barley acknowledges we are located on Treaty 6 territory, traditional lands of First Nations and Métis people.
Discover our iconic products: sustainably-made, worn-repeatedly and life-approved.
With every conversation and decision we aim to inspire connections. We invite people to engage with us; to share their stories and voices. There is something special about the people who wear Poppy Barley. They’re honest and willing to take risks. They’re confident and fun. They are just as suspicious of cheap and generic as they are of the elite and arrogant. Our community makes choices that echo out into the world and change things, even in small ways. We design everyday lifestyle essentials that reflect the values of our community: people, planet, and a better future.

Sizing Note: For the most accurate fit, measure around your body where you plan to wear the belt. Choose the closest belt size to that measurement.
The Accent Belt and The Complement Belt size measurements start from the beginning of the leather to the middle hole.
The Infinite Belt size measurements cover the entire length of the leather.
If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline,
wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your
midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.
If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline,
you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of
bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring
tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.
When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The
belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.
If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:
