Student Profile - Megha Bhuwalka

Megha travelled all the way from India to join our 10 day Mastering Footwear course, upon completion she promptly returned to India to start up her own shoe brand, Buna Pelle.

A textile designer by profession, Megha was always fascinated with the accessories department and found herself always in the workshop tinkering with the machines and materials. She visited factories in Mumbai and Kanpur to hone her skills and finally ended up booking herself into our 10 day footwear masterclass, which set her up ready to start her business.

Here’s what Megha had to say about her experience at I CAN MAKE SHOES:

"The Mastering Footwear course at I CAN MAKE SHOES was better than I could have imagined! A textile student who fell in love with the idea of making her own shoes! After 2 years of online pining and visiting factories all around India I finally decided to try the course. The course taught me all the basics I needed to learn about leather and shoe making. The hands-on experience was exciting, exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time. Seeing my paper shoe drawings come to life sealed the deal. I knew that this is what I wanted to do. This is how I want to feel all the time, like I can conquer the world!" - Megha, 2018.
