Photografic tribute

The Raiguer region has been the cradle of many individuals who have passed on their knowledge of the shoe sector and its associated industries from generation to generation. In order to pay tribute to those men and women who devoted their lives to the Majorcan shoe industry, in 2018 our Museum appealed to the local community to collect photographs depicting people who had some sort of connection with the sector. Our aim was to dignify and praise the tireless work of individuals who helped position the Raiguer region as the island’s main industrial hub. In addition to the photographs collected thanks to the before mentioned popular appeal, the monument also features the names of some individuals in honour of the many male and female shoemakers who were and have been registered in the region from 1885 until today.
