THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HANDCRAFT
Dr. Martens have been championing handcraft and traditional techniques from our very inception. To celebrate the vitality of handcraftsmanship, we spent the day at our Wollaston factory with a group of artists and makers to explore the personal nature of their work and practices.

HANDCRAFTING: A LINK TO PERSONAL HERITAGE
Through the use of traditional techniques Mark is able to explore, express and celebrate his family heritage.
