In 1940, a French soldier named René Cléon was captured by the Germans and spent five years in a POW camp. A shoemaker by trade, René practised his craft while in captivity and dreamed of starting his own shoe manufacturing workshop. After the war, he opened his factory in Anjou and Kleman (short for Cléon Manufacture) has been making beautiful shoes ever since.
