My Workshop

About 9 years ago I have started out as a designer. Designing was a lot of fun, but something was missing, I wanted to MAKE the shoes. Unfortunately there aren't too many places around the world where you can learn shoemaking. Therefore I have decided to learn by myself, after a while I have found a few local tradesmen who have helped me and guided me.

A few years I've found myself in my workshop, at peak production another maker and myself were making 150 pairs a week, it was a lot of hard work but I loved my workshop. I love the smell of coffee, cigarettes and glue drying on soles before attaching to the shoes, for me it smelled as good as fresh bread as it comes out of the oven.

Gradually I took more interest in making more unique shoes, shoes that fit better, and I questioned the environmental impact of making a lot of pruduct- selling- reducing price- and then clearance. It does not make sense.
I truly love making shoes, and I enjoy every moment of it. I pride myself on the quality and craftsmanship of my shoes and strive to make each pair the best pair I've made so far.
I always use the highest quality materials in an effort to make the longest lasting, highest quality sustainable footwear
