A Short History of Sancho Boots.
The Cowboy Boot Store has an excellent range of mens and womens leather and snake skin western boots, biker boots, and urban cowboy boots from Sancho and other manufacturers.
In 1947 a group of artisan craftsmen in Almansa, southern Spain joined together after their country had suffered great hardship due to the civil war and world war 2. They started rebuilding their lives by forming a co-operative making footwear, and Sancho Abarca was born.
Sancho continued through the 50s and 60s to expand into a large company with the workforce increasing to about 600 and staff facilities included a kindergarten for the workers children, a school, barber shop, and leather tanning facilities. They began exporting Sancho Abarca Cowboy Boots to the rest of Europe, USA and Canada specialising in quality boots using Goodyear Welt construction and double stitching techniques to improve wear quality The resilting product was a durable high quality, hard wearing boot.
Sancho always used top quality materials and later expanded the range to include a greater variety of high grade exotic leathers which has brought the company great respect from other manufacturers, and a brand that customers purchase with confidence. Some customers even come back and buy a new pair just like the ones they bought 10 years earlier, but they never throw the old pair out which have become an old friend.
Sancho Abarca Boots has now embraced the latest technologies combined with many traditional hand made processes to bring the factory into the 21st century. They have successfully managed to combine traditional techniques and modern manufacturing methods to attain the Quality Certification ISO9001/2008 for which the company has to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide a high quality product that meets customer requirements and statutory regulations, and must also have systems in place to enhance customer satisfaction.
Sancho Abarca Cowboy Boots are now available throughout Europe, USA, Asia, Africa and Australia.
Sancho believes that the secret or their success is that they have retained the attitudes of the founding craftsmen and women and all it's employees feel like they are part of a big family and have a personal involvement in producing a product to be proud of. Possibly the secret of their success.
Sancho have been undergoing problems recently and we are unable to restock them. We are however stocking Mayura boots which are similarly hand made to the same high standards from the same region of Spain. We have an excellent range, possibly the most extensive range in the UK.
