Thomase Rowe moved from Canada to London in 2009 where he discovered his passion for shoemaking and was trained by Paul Thomas from Cordwainers College,London. Rowe has since created his own bespoke shoe making business in reaction to today's wasteful throw-away fashion culture. Thomas makes shoes that will last and perceives shoemaking as a nostalgic process for his clients to personally connect with. Whilst sticking to traditional crafting techniques, he takes great pleasure in hand-making truly one-off creations as well as classic and timeless styles. His other great passions are writing music and putting together works of poetry. Thomas plays regularly with other London based musicians and in the past had success with his Neo Psychedelic Rock band, The Green Hour. He hopes to combine all of his outside influences into his current passion for shoe making.
