We recently learnt that a shoemaker is not a cobbler (he's the repair guy) but a cordwainer. In Australia, there are few finer cordwainers than Belmore. We paid a visit to their factory in Sydney's Inner West, which has been making shoes for over 40 years.
Behind every good product, there is a great workshop. CDR (short for Craft, Design, Realisation) makes tables, bookshelves and chairs at a large space in Botany, Sydney. In a new section on the Smith site, we take a look at what goes on behind the scenes.
