Description

The Aurland Shoe - a pure natural product.
Shoe production has a long tradition in Aurland. As far back as the 1800's. The Aurland shoe factory, which was started in the 1940's, still carries the tradition. Production, which in early years was mainly done in private homes and small shops, is today centralized in a modern locality.
When production was at its peak in the 1940's and 50's, around 90 people were engaged, and the shoe was completely hand sown. Today there are about six people employed and work is partially done by machine.
From 1/7-2009 the factory turn into a Èconomusèe - to promote and keep alive traditional crafts and knowledge. Discover Artisans at work!
