"I needed to create and participate to fashion in a different way"
Favoring Human Touch
We choosed to work only with family workshops on a human scale, which have been manufacturing shoes by hand for more than 2 generations and which are based in Spain and Italy. Each workshop has been selected for one or more specialties.
The Spanish workshop is based in the Alicante region, which is known for high end making shoes. It is specialized in the making comfortable padded soles.
Our Italian manufacturer is based in the Tuscany region, which is known for his leather working skills. It is specialized in leather softening and hand weaving.
Valuing handmaking know-how
We consider that manufacturing our shoes in those family workshops, still making shoes by hand, and based in Europe, contributes to maintain the know-how of a recognized traditional hand making skill and guarantee a justified salary for passionate handcrafters.
Making Shoe Designed to Last
To us, producing long lasting shoes means manufacturing comfortable shoes which go through years without aging. By using living materials such as real leather, which has the capacity to regenerate by simply applying cream or wax on it. But also, because of resistant rubber soles which we choose and which can be easily re-sown.
