Sanders & Sanders Ltd. was established in 1873 by brothers William Sanders and Thomas Sanders of Rushden, Northamptonshire.  They had a vision of offering outstanding quality footwear to discerning members of the public throughout England.  They and their five craftsmen, selected the finest English hides, the best local oak-bark tanned soles and began to design and make boots. This vision has since passed down from father to son and the company is currently in the forth generation of family management, employing over one hundred craftsman.  The traditional skills are now complemented by the most modern production machinery and advanced computer control systems, but the Company’s commitment to quality is unchanged.  Sanders & Sanders Ltd. is one of the few manufacturers in its field to be awarded the coveted ISO9002 (BS5750) Quality Assurance accreditation.  As well as supplying the United Kingdom market, the Company today exports footwear directly to over thirty countries across five continents
