I’m an Australian shoemaker and mother of three. My business partner Adrian and i call ourselves Pendragon Shoes and have been creating unique footwear for 20 years now. Our stuff is very intricate and labour intensive. Lots of natural themes and textural stuff like embossing leather to look like leaves.
We also do the off the shelf shoe designs that are quicker and easier and cheaper to make and sell, and the theatre and film work. But it’s the one off design themes and special stuff that really satisfies me. Recently we have been making spats in Victorian and Steam punk style.
