In an interview with Riaan George of Urban Eye, Charles Pignal, a fourth-generation member of the family and the Heritage Director explains how it all started.

His great-grandfather when first visited India in the 1920s, saw people walking barefoot or with torn shoes. Apart from foreseeing a huge market potential, he envisioned to provide Indians with quality shoes at an affordable price. Till today that legacy continues. (Source: thestrategystory.com)
