History of Shoemaking on DVD



Shoemaking was a traditional handicraft profession, which has now been largely replaced by the industrial manufacture of footwear. Shoemakers or cobblers produced a range of footwear items, including shoes, boots, sandals, clogs and moccasins. These are generally made of leather, wood, rubber, plastic, jute or other plant material.

From the shoes beginnings in early Egyptain times, shoe rubber, its history and manufacture, the humble village cobbler, thru to early shoe factories - their design and machinery, stories of early shoemaking, vintage shoe catalogs, this collection of rare and vintage books provides a valuable insight into the history of shoe design, their manufacture and repair. A library of twenty-three {23} books presented to you on a Gift Quality DVD.
