Behind The Scenes: Earls Barton Factory Pt.1

Posted by Lee Fleming on

In 1880, the foundation stone of Barker Shoes was laid in a humble cottage in the heart of England's shoe manufacturing industry by an enterprising Northamptonshire boot maker, Arthur Barker.

A snapshot of the Barker Shoes factory located in Earls Barton, which aside from a physical factory tour is the closest to exploring where Barker Shoes are made.

Each year, our craftspeople produce some 200,000 pairs of hand lasted sewn shoes.
