Hello. My name is Seiichiro Ueda, COO of INTERNATIONALSHOES CO.,LTD. I'm the third generation succesor of our family company. We are a long established women's shoemaker founded in 1954. We make shoes for luxuary Japanese brands and also collaborate with "Factelier" an apparel brand known for its quality. I grew up surrounded by shoes. When I was little, I tried to impress my grandfather by making a pair of shoes out of origami. Our city, Naniwa-ku, is a town known for crafting leather items. We hope to preserve the tradition of our local industry by sharing the experience with the world.
Special leather, materials, and historical shoemaking machines.
