Founded 2003 in Indonesia
The story of Jalan Siriwijaya started in 1919 when Indonesia was still a Dutch colony. The company was making military boots for foreigners. However, the son of the founder decided to study at the Mecca for classic shoemaking which is Northampton, and he learned the hand welted construction because he knew that one day the demand for civilian classic shoes will rise.
In 2003, the modern day brand Jalan Siriwijaya was launched.
