Each shoe last has a story of its past and show signs of age and use by a shoemaker of cobbler. Made into a door stop, with a 106 year old ‘distaff’ which is a tool which was used in the spinning industry. These shoe lasts can be described by all the words we love – worn, vintage, history, recycled, industrial, wood, organic, tactile, salvaged.
A lovely imaginative gift for the home, for a gatherer of curiosities, somebody in the shoe industry, a stylish interior devotee – to add to their aesthetic collections.
Made of hardwood & cast iron, these lasts had to be strong for stretching leather and shaping the shoes on them.
