About Me

My history of shoemaking started in the year of 1985 in Poland, when I was first introduced to my master of old school shoemaking, Jan Bednarz. He guided me through the art of shoemaking from the very beginning. He passed on the secrets and tips of the trade to me which I would not have been able to discover without him. For a youngster like me it was another magical world which I have entered.

I have found that shoemaking is my passion and it gives me great satisfaction. Now from a few years, my shop and workshop are located in Northern Ireland, where I was warmly welcomed by the local people. I feel at home now and I am continuing to make bespoke hand made shoes to the best of my ability for all my customers and future customers to enjoy.
