We have established this blog site to encourage company members or associates to contribute features or articles relating to the work or history of the Cordwainers’ Company. It’s less formal than the company website so if you’ve got something to say about modern Cordwaining, have discovered an interesting historical link, or simply have some pictures of gorgeous shoes, please get in touch!

Becka Hunt of De Montfort University designed this shoe for the Duchess of Cambridge, 2012.

Cordwainers have been at the centre of the British footwear and leather industry for 800 years. Today, the Company is proud to be one of the largest providers of scholarships and bursaries to footwear students in higher education in the UK.
