about

ATELIER AT LAKE BLAGUŠ

Our shoes are sewn  with the Goodyear method, which is the most complicated way to be made.
We are artisans who trust tradition and upgrade it with new experience and knowledge.

25 years we have been creating
and producing unique products.

All products are custom made
in our atelier at lake Blaguš.

MERGED WITH NATURE

Surrounded by the forest only footsteps away from lake Blaguš you can find our spacious and elegant workshop. This is the place where love of nature and shoes are combined. A place where products are made by experienced hands are later sent to their new home. The building is made within the philosophy of our shoemaking: sustainable and traditional.

LOCATION

Our clients can take advantage of the Forest glamping resort Blaguš, the glamping resort with lake houses, that shares our space by the lake. On the other hand, we can offer the guests, that visit the glamping houses, something different: a guided tour of the atelier or the shoemaking workshop.

THE CREATOR

”From the beginning I relied on my intuition: The future will be in the uniqueness of the product. Since then, the good word has gone from word to mouth.”

– Mario Herzog –

LEGACY

We believe that every generation is obligated to make something new, but all the novelities certainly cannot be done without the respect and knowledge of those who came before us.
