SANDALMAKER

Paul

  I began making sandals in 1965. I walked into a shop in Greenwich Village, in New York City and got to talking with the guy who owned the shop. That encounter changed my future, although I didn’t know it at the time. I worked for several months in his workshop…apprentice might be too strong a word, and then, when I felt that I was ready to strike out on my own, I left New York for the Ann Arbor, Michigan area.

    For the next 30 years I made sandals in Michigan. I worked the art fair circuit, had a shop in various locations in southeastern Michigan, and at times worked in shops that were owned by other leatherworkers. I made sandals, belts, handbags, leather clothing, and just about everything else that could be fashioned from leather. As time went by though, the demand for sandals and belts pushed everything else off my table. For the past twenty years I have made only sandals and belts.

 

BELTMAKER

Valerie

    In 1995 my wife and co-worker, Valerie, and I moved to Asheville and opened Paul Taylor Custom Sandals and Belts. Asheville seemed then, and still seems to us today, to be the perfect place to live and work. We think you’ll enjoy visiting Asheville and hope that if you do, you will stop in to say hello.
