Founded in 1940, Tarrago first began as a manufacturer of dyes for fabrics and household uses. As a response to the poor economic climate of Spain in the early 60s, they shifted towards commercializing their dyes for shoe repair and care. It’s at this point when they developed the Universal Dye, the first dye of its kind, which was able to completely change the color of leather. The dye revolutionized the industry and eventually became the impetus for not only Tarrago’s success, but for their international expansion as well. Soon, the company began developing a range of product lines for all kinds of footwear – from sports to horse riding, and industrial footwear to children’s shoes – and has a presence in over 50 countries. Not bad for a company that had its roots in a small region near Barcelona, Spain.
