After the crisis of the 90’s  preceding the collapse of the Soviet Union, and after the years of the state reorganization before the Republic of Armenia was born, most of the Armenian manufacturing product, which is of thousands of years, is trying, in recent years, to develop and to lead the economics that has always characterized its success at the world level.

The foreign capital often drives the private initiative in Armenia, sometimes of those wealthy Armenians of the Diaspora, scattered all over the world mainly after the persecution of the nineteenth century and after the Armenian Genocide of the early decades of the twentieth century. 

In some cases, however, with great sacrifices, young Armenians with extensive capacities  in the field of trade and small manufacturing production, on their own and with considerable economic efforts by themselves and their families set up companies that enrich the territory and the natural inclination present in it.

It is well known, for example, that the oldest shoe has been found in Armenia, sewn 5500 years ago, padded with grass, a kind of primitive fabric Hi Tech, to make them more resistant to the cold and water. The shoe was found in September 2008 during the exploration of a cave, in a very good state of preservation - thanks to a cover of organic elements.

According to this extraordinary tradition and the subsequent evolution of the manufacture of men's shoe in Armenia, in 2012 was founded the company KristoBad with its twenty employers, among workers and managers, and the leaders are Armen Badalyan and Mher Kristosduryan

The owners of the company, before the foundation of the company, have traveled in the world to get specialized in trends and in more innovative processes.
