More and more people are moving away from the latest ‘it’ must have items, produced in large numbers by big labels. They are embracing the notion of luxury that comes from the rarer artisan produced items that are made by hand, with skill and care. A perfect example is a handmade shoe.
The Cordwainer is historically an artisan who made luxury shoes and boots from the finest leathers. These age old skills have slowly been lost over time with the development of mechanised mass production. I make my shoes by hand to order, and this allows me to also offer a large size range of 37 - 45, to include the lady with the larger foot who is endeavouring to find beautiful footwear.
My designs are contemporary, will stand alone, and be accessible no matter what is driving fashion trends. The emphasis is on using quality materials, coupled with careful crafting, which results in a beautiful handmade shoe. A luxury item that is unique, comes to you with its own history, and will be with you for many years to be enjoyed.
