In 1866 Matías Pujadas opened a small workshop in Inca, Majorca, and he began crafting tailor-made shoes and started a family tradition of shoemakers. A generation later, his son Mateo Pujadas followed his father's steps, and opened one of the first factories of Goodyear-stitched shoes in the Balearic Islands.
During the 20th century, the Pujadas shoemaking tradition continued, and in 1997 José Albaladejo Pujadas, fourth generation of shoemakers in the Pujadas family, decided to create a new company together with his wife and some of his sons in Majorca. The new business was called Carmina Shoemaker, and its aim was to create some of the world's best hand-crafted shoes. In Carmina, the costumer can really see and feel what the experience in six generations of shoemaking is like.
