ACQUO of Sweden is a Swedish brand. The ACQUO boot has a history of innovation and sensual design. First they were made in the late 70´s in Sweden and became extremely popular. The shaft and the sole of the boots are made of 100% natural rubber of the highest quality.
Around 2010 Jessica Lingonstierna first came in contact with some of these amazing boots, which were manufactured in the 70's. It was only a few pairs left and the production and company were closed long time ago. Jessica decided to do something about this!
Now, 2016, Jessica and her team are finally producing and selling the boots again! 2015 and 2016 has been fun, hectic and challenging 2 years for both, herself and her new company, ACQUO of Sweden.
The new version of these beautifully soft rubber boots has been very carefully crafted to keep to the original design, but with a slightly improved sole with printed logo. ACQUO is made of 100% natural rubber. The boot is soft, semi-shiny and black. The company invested in lasts and soles to have the new exclusive ACQUO product in different shaft and heel lengths.
Jessica loves her job at ACQUO and her work with its products, and she likes to service the customers’ enquiries personally on a daily basis. It’s great for her to talk to people from all over the world.
Jessica, please briefly tell us about yourself and your passion. Have you always been fascinated by fashion and design?
Please tell us about ACQUO of SWEDEN.
ACQUO of Sweden is a Swedish company that I started in April 2015. We sell and make soft rubber boots. The ACQUO boot has a history of innovation and sensuous design. The boots are made of 100 % natural rubber. We only sell the boots on our website. You can not find them in any store, but we are thinking about working with good resellers around the world in the future also.
Where are your designs produced?
The boots are produced in China. We tried out 3 different factories before I decided with the one I work with now. I want high quality. I have been visiting the factory in China two times and know the owner of the factory and we work very well together.
Like I said, I tried out three different factories before I was satisfied with both aesthetics and functionality. I want the boots to look and feel like they did in the 1970’s
What inspired you to your performance to revive an old brand and set up a new company for it?
I noticed that it was a demand for these boots and I just decided to go for it. I love taking chances in life.
Define your personal style.
I am more of a romantic girl. I never wear jeans, I love dresses and boots together
Who would you say is your 'style muse'?
I really don’t have one. I look at a lot of different things and pick up styles from different places.
Elegance is to me beauty that shows simplicity.
I don’t have one. Probably because I am not an educated designer myself. I listen to my self and I look everywhere for ideas.
Go for it! I love fashion and I love working online. I also love traveling and being a model so I do everything in my own company. This was never a risk to me, more of a chance. I thought, if this does not work out, I have at least tried. There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
Jessica, thank you for giving us a glimpse into your world. We love your boots and will follow the development of ACQUO of Sweden also in the future.
