Portrait of Corthay

A remote region in West of France, in the small town of Beaupréau…In this rather noisy workshop, their white coats are stained and well used …

The machines are heavy, and old …

Here the craftsmen work hard with conviction, day in and day out, focused on crafting the finest shoes. And when the engines are run down, they fix them themselves, and keep them well looked after, as if they are a member of the family.

This is not a story to cast light on the dream factory that you would usually hear about …This is what corthay actually do.
