Tacks and nails for the shoe industry

RIVIERRE : nails for the shoe businessShoemaking tack was the first type of nail produced in the nail factory Rivierre in 1888. At that time, Theodore Rivierre used a revolutionary new method, using a wire instead of a sheet of metal.

Today, with the original XIXth century machines, we keep producing those tacks, known all over the world for their quality.
Shoemakers use them both for manufacturing and repairing nails.
