Allow us to introduce you to shoemaker Eiichi Katsukawa. Following a degree in shoe design and an apprenticeship in the UK, he launched an award-winning shoe brand in his native Japan. In this inspiring video, we see our extraordinary maker create his shoes from scratch at his workshop in the busy metropolitan city of Tokyo. He’s using a type of reversed cowhide leather, which he discovered himself and has called ‘nibe leather’. Eiichi is extremely passionate about his work and highly skilled to boot, dedicating his whole life to his craft.
