A vintage shoe last which has been salvaged, cleaned and upcycled into a kitchen or loo roll holder. Cleverly designed and handmade, a bobbin has been used for the upright part of the holder. Each wooden last has a story of its past and show signs of age and use by a shoemaker or cobbler.
These can be described by all the words we love – worn, vintage, history, recycled, industrial, wood, organic, tactile, salvaged.
Made of hardwood & cast iron, these lasts had to be strong for stretching leather and shaping the shoes on them.
