Saint Crispin's - handmade shoes with utmost quality

One of the guys I met was a young Swede, Saman Amel - one of the two guys behind the young brand Saman Amel, based in Stockholm and specialized in ties and other accessories. Made in Sweden  One of things the guys behind Saman Amel are rightly proud is the fact that all products are not just designed but as well produced personally by their own team in Stockholm, Sweden. The main focus is on...
