    The Making

    Our artisans usually work on a batch of 40 to 60 pairs in a cycle. This involves a few days of craftsmanship that goes into every pair of shoes. The process begins with an approach that blends centuries of tradition, as we start each pair with the blank slate of beautiful and individual imperfections of natural leather, with each individual craftsman lovingly and painstakingly tying each knot and sewing every seam.
