Stitchkraft stands for longevity, innovation and sustainability in safety footwear.
Words you might hear quite often with regards to how companies perceive themselves these days.
In contrast, the world as we know it today is running on outsourcing, economies of scale, cost-cutting (or other ways of taking shortcuts) and stuff that does not really align with the above values.
They are not out there in numbers but finding awesome work-wear suppliers around the globe that share these values gets us out of bed each day.
