How the Master Artisans Craft Each Individual Shoe to the Highest Standards of Quality
First, the leather is carefully selected for each model. We use only the highest quality calfskin for
an unforgettable feel.
These leathers are then hand-dyed to create the eye-catching patterns and vibrant colors so
iconic in our models.
The first stitch is inserted in the front of the shoe, to ensure the model has the correct shape.
This is done with high quality waxed thread of one millimeter to ensure the longevity of the stitching.
This is then continued to the back end of the shoe where the heel meets.
Next, the leather is individually cut by hand in the form of the models
At this point, the individual pieces are placed together and prepared to be stitched by hand. This
is when the models come to life! However, this is also the most important part of the entire
process. The artisans must be extremely precise in uniting the pieces to make sure they line up
perfectly once the sewing begins.
