Swain The Resurrection Of Boot Making History.
Back in 1918 in a small village in Portugal in a time that people were starving, there lived a man named Mendes and he decided to do something about his situation. With his hands and no use of machinery he created a beautiful handcrafted pair of boots. He showed it to the local craftsmen and they were impressed: “Keep doing your work young man, the boots are perfectly made”. The next week young Mendes went to the local market and sold all the boots he made.
That was the start of a flourishing business with more than 20 men joining the workshop including his youngest son. The business was passed over from father to son. However as the years past competition came in from industrial made boots. The workshop was closed but the market selling continued.
This year Rodrigo one of Mendes’s grandsons decided to bring the old boot making workshop back in business with an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. We now live in a time where individuality and craftsmanship are valued and you can be part of it, be part of Swain.
