Dansko asked their employees what inspired them. Employee Jan K. shared her enthusiasm about the Small House Movement.

Gregory Johnson, President of the Small House Society, provides this commentary:

“In 2010 Jan K. purchased my tiny Tumbleweed design home, which is one of the first homes built that helped launch the small house movement. When I learned that it might be featured in the Dansko catalog, I was really encouraged. I’m inspired by all that Dansko is doing to improve the environment and our world. It seems that Dansko has become the official shoe of the Small House Movement!” ~ Greg Johnson
