News that in Lipnica near Tuzla, ”Prada” shoes are being made surprised the public, but the workers of the ”Bosit Industry” don’t see anything spectacular in it, because they’ve been working for ”Prada” for ten years.
This company was founded six years ago by Miralem Bajraktarević and Zlatan Simeunović, and since may last year it produces 7 000 pairs of shoes of one of the most famous world brands.
”The cooperation with Italian partners started in 2007. In the beginning we were making only upper parts of shoes, and now we make the entire model. We get our raw material from Italy, and then we assemble shoes here, and afterwards, we sell it in Italy. Currently, we work on sandals, sports sneakers and stylish shoes, “said the manager of ”Bosit Industry” Miralem Bajraktarević.
”Bosit Industry” employs around 180 workers, and Bajraktarević added that cooperation with Italians could be expanded soon.
Italian partners have their supervisors in Lipnica.
Impeccable quality is required, with detailed checks, but BiH workers fulfil all the need of ”Prada” without any problems.
“When we get the raw materials, deviations are up to one percent. The unused raw material is regularly being returned. This is the most renowned fashion house in the world of footwear, and they demand a lot. The shoe literally has to glow. Quality must be at the highest level, but we are able to meet all of their demands, ” explained the manager of “Bosit Industy “.
