Sebastian Tarek

Founded 2013 in United Kingdom
Based in London

Sebastian is an Australian born shoemaker based in East London who has worked for London’s finest shoemakers since 2003 – where he has spent years refining his skills of fit, and creating work of the highest standards to satisfy the clientele of Saville Row and beyond.

Sebastian still works for two of the last remaining members of the West End Master Boot Makers society, who have been making shoes for the Royal Court since the 19th Century.

This deep understanding of the heritage of classic English footwear, and his own family background as a 18th generation shoe maker result in a collection with a rare attention to detail and material, and visible application to manual craft. These are objects to be held in the hands.
