Meet the Maker
In search of a cultural experience, a young traveller made his way to the Far East. One day, he found himself wandering into a quaint shoe store in the heart of New Delhi where he met Balram, the humble shopkeeper looking for the best shoes for standing all day.
Balram passed on his secrets and when the traveller left the shop smelling of old leather and cigars, he felt as though he had found his purpose, and so began Rompa.
Rompa sources materials from across the globe to craft bespoke leather footwear. From Argentina to the northern regions of India, each shoe is inspired from the travellers’ journey.
Part of Rompa’s vision in essence of its’ begging’s is to not only provide quality footwear through humane and renewable resources, but to also give back to the communities in which the traveller wanders.
Come and see Rompa’s Winter range this June at The Rose St Market.
