The history of our family business is very long, but we want to tell it briefly!
Meet Maslauskas family : Our second generation shoemakers - designer Gintarė and CEO Benas together with Benas's parents and founders of Mas Laus - Jurgita and Žanas with their second child Haris.
We are the second generation of shoemakers and we are extremely proud of that. The history of our family shoemaking was started in 1996 by Žanas Maslauskas. Probably the first and by far the most famous footwear designer in Lithuania. With the help of his wife Jurgita, he was able to learn the secrets of shoemaking by himself without any help, just by working hard as a cobbler and having a big dream to one day create exclusive shoes. While repairing other manufacturers' shoes every day, he analyzed them, looked for the reasons why the shoes broke, thus learning how to make the highest quality footwear.
During Žanas and Jurgita's wedding, he promised that one day they would own a shoe factory. It seemed like an impossible aspiration, knowing that at the time they had their own shoe repair stall in one of the neightborhoods of small city Kedainai, Lithuania. But today it is a reality! Also Žanas and Jurgita were able to fulfill their other dream and hand over the business to their son Benas and his wife Gintarė! Taught them all the secrets of shoe production and design. It's a pity that Žanas is not with us anymore, as he passed away only at 44 years old in 2019, but we're glad that he was able to see how quickly we grew and fulfilled his and our whole family's dream!
Thank you for valuing quality, sustainable products and supporting Lithuanian family business. Every customer is very important to us. Congratulations on joining our family!
