Factory Photo Series: Stations Part 1 March 04 2016

We're proud to be a small, family operated American manufacturer. Our little old factory is a very special place to us, and that's why we're excited to bring you the Factory Photo Series.

This post's theme is stations. There are over 126 steps that go into making a pair of our shoes, and almost every step is represented by a physical space in the plant. Many of these stations have stayed exactly the same for years. Some have accumulated notes and tips by the people who have worked at each station over time. Here's a quick look at some of these stations in the plant.
 
Looking into the office, where three generations of our family have worked before us.
 
 
 The Fitting Room, where the all the pieces of the shoes' uppers and linings are fit together and stitched.

The office and the fitting room are just two of five sections of our factory, so there are more photos to come. It means so much to us to continue our family's shoemaking legacy in the same space that has been used for almost a century and half.
