The love of making brought me to design footwear. I worked in the shoe trade for ten years and wanted to create my own shoemakery with the humble aim to make shoes that fits everyone perfectly.
Maria is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and worked in the shoe trade for ten years before starting The Shoemakery.
Her products – at the moment a range of sandals – are designed to be comfortable, customised and locally produced.
The Shoemakery operates out of an innovative set of mobile workshop units where the products are made from beginning to end, striking the perfect balance between the hand and the machine.
