Scheer & Sohne / Artisan Shoemakers

2 Posted by - February 28, 2012 - Fashion













Scheer & Sohne shoemakers in Vienna, Austria have been making handcrafted shoes since the 1800’s and the business is run by a seventh generation Scheer.  What caught my attention about this company is that they focus very heavily on apprenticeships knowing that survival is based on passing on your craft to the next generation.  As our world speeds and craftsmanship is disposed in favour of higher profits and faster turn-around I have a feeling that we will long to have a piece of something that exudes art, creativity, passion and authenticity.
