Reflections on SITRANA

SITRANA started in 2009 as a single pair of boots and slowly took shape into becoming it's own shoemaking workshop, with retail stores and global customers.  Based in Santiago, Chile, SITRANA builds cowhide leather footwear for men using locally-sourced leathers and working with a team of seven shoemakers.  Techniques involve hand-cutting, building by hand, and a stitched sole, similar to footwear made for the national rodeo industry though designed and built for daily menswear use.
