Our full grain leathers
We only use full-grain leathers to make our shoes: this is the upper part of the skin, dense and smooth, which did not go through any post-tanning alteration. Guaranteeing unrivalled strength, softness and feel to the touch, this process is the noblest that can be applied to leather while maintaining a certain level of roughness for a unique effect. Its aniline finish delivers a unique patina over time, one that reveals intense hues.
Our leather sole
Our soles are made by highly skilled craftsmen in Portugal with respect for the traditional savoir-faire. In leather, hand-cut with a template cutter, then welded to the stem, they are covered in nubuck for a velvety finish and optimal grip. Thin and supple, they automatically give a sleek look to your shoes.
Our production workshops in Portugal
We work hand-in-hand with family-owned workshops every day to develop the most perfect and comfortable models with the finest finishes. Each workshop is selected for its own specific traditional know-how: the variety of the steps needed to create a studded moccasin, the technicality of a Strobel-made sneaker, the expertise of the perfect arch of our heels or even the mastery of the upside down assembly that offers unrivalled suppleness to our ballet flats and slippers.
