Let carreducker take the difficulty out of sourcing all the materials you need for making a pair of shoes. We can sell you two different Making Packs which will get you started.
Making Pack 1 Cost £330 plus shipping
All individual prices are plus shipping
This is the complete pack which will allow you to make a pair of handsewn shoes as long as you have the tools to do it. All the rough stuff is English oak bark tanned cow hide, very good quality (it's what we use ourselves)
A pair of standard lasts in a size of your choice. Bought individually £80
A pair of calf Derby uppers in a colour of your choice to fit the above last. Bought individually £180
Heel Top-Pieces Bought individually £80
Hemp threads, enough to make welting threads and sole stitching threads. Bought individually £21
Thread wax, (homemade using beeswax, colophony and tallow) and tar. Bought individually £10
Bristles. Bought individually £1
Making Pack 2
This is for people who have made one pair and have their lasts. It is the same as Pack 1, but without the lasts.
