Made in America: Sara Irvani

When your grandfather risked it all to come to America in the 80’s to start a shoe manufacturing company, you have the beginnings of a great story.   It is the story of a company that would make their products in America, pay women equal wages and create eco-friendly products. It is a story now being told by the 3rd generation CEO – his granddaughter.
