There are various steps that allow the creation of a handcrafted shoe.

Preparation of the uppers

The upper is the upper part of the shoe, formed by a shaped piece, attached to the sole through a seam. The cutting of the upper leathers must be very precise and is done by hand or laser.


In the sewing phase, the assembly of all the parts just cut is done by hand and must respect the direction of the leather in order to guarantee maximum elasticity to the foot.
