Our crocodile embossed leathers
Ferocious and exotic, our crocodile embossed leather is a full grain leather with an appliqué shape. It is not the actual skin of a caiman. Embossing involves applying embossed shapes to the flat leather surfaces to create a custom pattern. The embossing is done by hand when heavy pressure is applied on the pattern. The unique look of the crocodile embossing comes in a variation of colors that give a wild touch to your looks.
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.
