Schuhe selbst machen in Moretonhampstead Devon | Go make Your Own Shoes

Schuhe gehören zu den Kleidungsteilen die man immer wieder neu kaufen muss.  Hier gibt es bei der Herstellung viel Ausbeutung im Arbeitsprozess und oft auch umweltschädliche Belastung durch Färbungsprozesse oder auch durch die Tierhaltung und Schlachtung.  In Devon gibt es einen Laden der Workshops anbietet die eigenen Schuhe an einem Wochenende selber zu machen, aus ökologischen Leder oder auch veganen Material. Der Bericht von mir hierzu steht in der Wochenendtaz vom 24.01.15.  Unten die Aufnahmen aus Moretonhampstead und von Green Shoes.

Everyone needs to renew theor shoes from time to time.  However shoes are often made in unethical and exploitative work conditions, not speak of environmental damage during the leather processing and colouring or the animals themselves who provide the material.  In Devon a small shoe manufacturer named Green Shoes allows anyone to make their own weekend using ecological leather or even vegan leather.  The shoes can further be repaired for a much longer time and are custom made.

A report of mine appeared in taz weekend on the 24th of January 2015.

Below the images from Green Shoes in Moretonhampstead and the shoe making process.

Daniel Zylbersztajn’s 2013

2013 through the selection of some of my articles:

This year I typed over 40 mostly on the ground researched pieces.  Many were transforming and unique written for four media outlets, Taz, Jüdische Allgemeine, Open Democracy and Die Zeit.  On three occasions I published only on my blog.

I hope I continue to write challenging and original pieces in the next year.  I have some already forthcoming to do with urban culture, domestic violence, sustainability and on Jewish issues.  Perhaps I will also write again more in English, as I have done in the past.

To my all my readers, but especially my loyal ones and interviewees, a great thank you.  I could not do without you!  Special thanks to all the newspapers and editors, you know who are!
