Pointer: Made in Portugal

UK footwear brand, Pointer‘s short documentary, Made in Portugal, offers an in-depth look at the manufacturing process of their upcoming line of footwear, as well as the staff behind it.  Gareth Skewis explains the company’s past desires to produce completely European-manufactured footwear, and how that transition has become reality.

Pointer’s Fall/Winter 2010 collection, as well as all of the brand’s forthcoming releases, will be handmade in Portugal, using naturally tanned and ecological chemical free leathers.  However, due to competition in other countries, Pointer’s manufacturers have unfortunately downsized their production, but have still been able to meet their demands.  Quality wins overall.
