A wonderful, and sobering article written by journalist Jelena Prtoric profiling the Borovo Startas factory and the city of Vukovar for Roads and Kingdoms magazine. Check out the full article here: http://roadsandkingdoms.com/2016/shoes.
While we love Startas for their unique styles, this article is a great reminder of how supporting a product, that's made by skilled hands, can have a meaningful and immediate impact on the livelihood of a community. It's why we do what we do, and why we can't thank everyone enough for their support.
P.S. In case you were wondering, the image on top, of a bombed-out Borovo factory building, was taken by Jelena in the last few weeks. It's a stark reminder of how far Startas and Borovo have come, and how much more work lies ahead.
