“The guardian of a traditional craft”

In the old times ladies wore high heels on the city streets more frequently, so cobblers had more work, says Ptuj cobbler Pavle. Pavle and his wife Marija have been preserving this traditional craft in Krempljeva ulica for over four decades. During this time generations of Ptuj citizens walked through their workshop door, and many keep returning to the master cobbler’s shop.
