This singular museum shows Inca’s relationship with the footwear industry through a selection of machinery and instruments typical of the local leather industry. It reflects the importance of footwear as a dress complement, an artistic object and a decisive fashion and design item. Footwear as an activity began to gain prominence in Inca in the 14th century, when the town already had numerous artisans; three centuries later, they formed their own guild, independent of that of Palma. In the 19th century, the activity grew thanks to the industrialisation process and the advent of the train. Today, several family-run companies maintain the status of their products as internationally-prestigious beacons.
