Cordwainer (/ˈkɔːrdˌweɪnər/): a shoemaker who makes new shoes from new leather.
In addition to designing leather accessories, Andy Jahde is a passionate cordwainer, bringing the age-old craft of shoemaking into modern day.
In college, Jahde spent a year-long thesis designing a more comfortable insole for the high-heeled shoe. While following this passion, she attended Cordwainers at the London College of Fashion for an eight-week accelerated shoemaking course, and has apprenticed at Cole Haan and Michael Nash in NYC.
Andy is excited to bring this craft to Charleston (and beyond!) very soon. Please sign up for our emails to find out when you can order custom, bespoke footwear from Jahde Made.
