100th Year Anniversary

We are proud to announce and celebrate 100 years of our family owned store in Gujarat (India). Called the Imperial Shoe Store, it was opened in 1916 by Hafeji Umerji Yusuf. The store provided bespoke footwear for their clients and later was famed for catering for the Nawabs of Gujarat. The company also produced handmade saddles in the time of the British Raj in India. In the 1950’s and 1960’s the store was managed by the sons of  Hafeji Umerji Yusuf and now is currently managed by his Grand Children.
