Mainland Boots from New Zealand

Mainland Boots.  Handmade on vintage machines in New Zealand.

Little has changed since John Brown started in 1890. In fact we are still using a Puritan wax thread sewing machine dated 1895!

The heart of our boot making process is the brass screwing machines, one of these is dated 1916! That is our secret, this process is so old the emerging footwear manufacturing nations i.e. China, Vietnam and India cannot copy our product because they do not have the equipment.

From the descriptions they use on their site, it sounds like they use something similar to a blake stitch with either nails or brass screws.  The pairs shown above were made for Nepenthes.
