Cordwainers are shoemakers, originally highly skilled craftsmen who used the finest goatskin leather from Cordoba in Spain. The Company’s roots date back to 1272, and the first Charter in 1439 licensed Cordwainers to control the shoe trade within the City of London.

Today, the Cordwainers have a strong charitable ethos and our primary focus is to nurture young talent in the fashion and shoemaking industries. We achieve this by providing scholarships, bursaries and prizes to outstanding students at a number of Universities and colleges. In doing this we continue to promote the profile of shoe education and industry in the UK.
