CLEMATIS was founded in 2008 by Keitaro Takano and has gone on to establish itself as one of Japan’s leading specialist makers of bespoke footwear. Keitaro is one of the country’s entirely Japanese-schooled artisanal shoemakers, who trained under the renowned master Nobuyoshi Seki, from whom he learnt not only the craft of shoemaking but also how to understand the soul of the shoe. 

Keitaro will be in the Crane Brothers High Street boutique on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd March.
