Co-founded in 2007 by Mikko Kärmäräinen and Peter Ferber, Scandinavian label Human Scales have no secrets when it comes to its latest release, a range of beautiful handmade shoes. Best known for its vintage-inspired leather jackets and outerwear, it describes "the name itself implies that the clothes you wear are indeed a part of you, in essence a second skin or "human scales"."
Turning its attention to footwear, the aim is to offer an affordable, high quality range of Goodyear Welted shoes, all made in Turkey by skilled craftsmen. Here Human Scales uncover the fascinating production process in a stylish short film, a near hypnotic journey from unformed leather to fully-formed shoe which highlights the careful and precise techniques needed to create such sturdy footwear.
