Zgodovina Kopitarne Sevnica

Tradition since 1886


Towards the end of the 19th century, the German Winkle family got the idea to expand their business activities to Slovenia. Thus, in 1886, a company for the production of shoe hooves was established in Sevnica. The proximity of the surrounding forests contributed to this decision because at that time all shoemakers' hooves were still made of wood. The old sawmill was converted into a production hall, machines were installed and other necessary devices were soon made. The first pair of hooves was made on October 11, 1886. In 1892, a steam boiler was set up, where semi-finished products were steamed. The construction company Smrekar continued to build in Kopitarna, and over time the factory was transformed into the largest shoe hoof factory in its industry.

Creating for you

With the decree, which was the subject of the establishment of the company, the company was given the name "KOPITARNA SEVNICA" on October 31, 1946, which is still in use today. After 1973, we built a new building for semi-finished products, a mechanical and electrical workshop, and a part of the building for the production of footwear, which was completed in the summer of 1975. After that year, we started producing polyethylene hooves on new machines. Over the years, we have updated our shoe hoof program with the latest knowledge and technologies. We have also expanded our range with shoe tensioners and footwear. Footwear production soon increased sharply due to the growing demand for products made from natural materials such as wood, cork, and leather.

Shoe trees

The shoe tree, manufactured by the Kopitarna factory, is an ideal aid, used for maintaining footwear. It combines daily functionality with the warmth of wood. By preserving the shape of the shoe, it prolongs its life span. Wood absorbs moisture and thus keeps the shoe dry. The shoe tree enables shoes to be easily and suitably stored. We produce shoe trees from various types of wood: beech wood, poplar wood. You may choose from a variety of shoe trees which are: sanded but not lacquered, sanded and lacquered, sanded and stained.
