Handmade leather shoes
So who makes our shoes ?
When I was studying fashion design at IED in Rome, Italy I always knew if I would open a store or start my on brand I will find the best handcraft men&women in Italy to work with. So I started my search and I would be lying if I said it was easy to find them. I asked my professors for some help and they did, so after 6 months of searching for small family companies I finally found them.
But today I'm only going to talk about our shoemaker, I will not tell you his name cause I know he wont like it. His family lives in Napels, Italy and his company has been in his family for three generation, so making shoes is in his blood. I could not be happier with a shoemaker, his work is beautiful and so precised and I rarely have to ask him to fix a mistake in his work. He works with his wife and another lady who helps him sewing.
Our maine goal from the begining is to work in the fair trait system, that means to pay the right price for our product, not chasing the lowest price. We think that it is so important that the artisans who we are working with get fair price for their handwork.
