Die Liebe zum Leder - Vom Arbeiten in der Schuhfabrik

 
Memories of a working life in the „Kitzmantel“, one of the first industrial shoe manufactories in Upper Austria. Three women workers talk about the smell of leather, of friendship and cold factory halls. The story of whirring sewing machines, of these women and their passion for shoemaking continues today at L. Reiter Schuhmanufaktur in Vienna.
