Started in 2001, Sara Suole Pvt. Ltd. has grown from just 25 people in one location to become a USD 75 million company. Its footprint stretches across the world - from Europe to Africa, the US to Australia. And footprint is appropriate, because Sara Suole Pvt. Ltd. is India’s largest Builtup Sole manufacturer and one of its leading manufacturers of shoes and leather.
Right from inception, Sara Suole has concentrated on ensuring the highest standards of manufacture. Which is why every step of the process is overseen strictly, using end-to-end integration of production: from raw leather to finished footwear, from design to retailing.
With its own design center in Italy, Sara Suole has several units employing hundreds of skilled craftspeople and equipped with world-class machinery for manufacture and testing. Craftsmanship is key in footwear and our workers have earned an enviable reputation for ensuring a finish which compares to the best in the world.
The finest craftsmen need the finest materials and tools. That's why Sara Suole imports raw leather strictly from LGW compliant tanneries in the USA, the Amazon Basin and Europe and finishes 12 million sq. ft. in its LWG Gold rated plant. 360,000 kg of vegetable tanning is carried out for soles. Besides its own premium calf, kip and cow leather, Sara Suole also imports premium finished leather from Italy & Argentina.
Its current manufacturing capacity - which is being enhanced – is over 18,000 pairs of soles and 10,500 pairs of shoes a day. Of particular note is the Central Sourcing Department, which coordinates with nearly 50 customers worldwide. The in-house design, sourcing and manufacturing abilities are supplemented by associations with leading specialist manufacturers. Among a number of other awards and accolades, Sara Suole Pvt. Ltd. is certified as a 3-star exporter by the Government of India.
A state-of-the-art Testing Laboratory complements the excellence of manufacturing and craftsmanship. Armed with the latest equipment and highly qualified technicians, it can test tensile & tear strength; do endurance, performance, ageing and bonding testing and much more for all of Sara Suole units.
