I've spent years trying to be something. The problem was, I didn't know what I was trying to be! I spent my life living for other people, rather than enjoying living for myself. I created this company out of my love and desire for one-off things, unique pieces that I could declare 'my own'. It was in this creation that it all made sense...
We carefully select beautifully soft, calf skin leather to craft the upper of your shoes, from the finest Italian tanneries. We use calf skin for its softer and porous properties that will allow your feet to breathe and the shoe to wrap around the foot, providing ultimate comfort.
HAND DYED TO A TONE
Our shoes are beautifully hand dyed and each tone defines its unique personality in every pair we create. The dyes are mixed from extract, alcohol and water, we work with small batches so that each time we mix we create a new tone from those raw ingredients.
ONE OF ONE - WORKSHOPS NOT FACTORIES
Our shoes aren't mass produced. We work on one pair at a time, in a sequential order based on when our orders come in. We cut each section of the shoe from the leather before it's then hand dyed and stitched together. Once the upper is together, it's wrapped round a last where it sits for at least five days before the sole adhered with a Blake welt for a refined, flexible fit.
Our shoes are quality, beautiful and bench made. We'll add the finishing touches in our studio and carefully wrap your shoes in cotton shoe bags before sending them out to you with our quality courier services.
CERTIFICATE OF PROVENANCE
Don't forget to keep hold of your certificate of provenance which will come with your shoes, smeared with the dye from your artist's fingers and signed by the man himself.
When you place your order with us, we'll keep you up to date throughout the crafting process with regular updates on where your shoes are in the production planner.
