Handcrafted in Italy & Spain
Our New Collection
People wear our shoes and it is important to make shoes with love and passion for shoes in mind.
Rebirth has been inspired by everything we have been through this year. The fight is not over, but we have definitely learnt a lot from it already.
Mother earth is so important to us, that’s why we call her ‘mother’ earth and yet we never treat her right. This period of lockdown taught us that when we are absent nature lives on, regrows, flourishes. We unfortunately cannot undo the damage we have done, but we can change our ways by reducing the negative impacts. In this collection Jerelyn aims at just that. She is not only inspired by the beautiful plants and flowers and the gorgeous insects that facilitate the regrowth of nature, but she also has researched to find materials that will reduce the impact our fashion habits have on mother nature.
Jerelyn has collaborated with a research and development company who works with tanneries that create leather that is sustainable, they call their project 3R which is reduce, reuse and recycle. Don’t be fooled by the word recycle, recycle in this case is not recycled leather, but recycled materials that are used by tanneries to create the finished leather product, for example water. Water is recycled therefore, reusing water to reduce the impact on the environment by reducing Co2 emissions, reducing consumption of energy, water, and waste materials.

From the beginning..
We are very excited about our launch of the men’s collection. We have tried and tested our men’s shoes on a very enthusiastic volunteer and we can confirm that the results we superb.
Here, is an image for you to understand what exactly goes into making a good, Goodyear welted shoe.
A Goodyear welt is a strip of leather, rubber, or plastic that runs along the perimeter of a shoe outsole. In our case, it’s leather. “Goodyear welt construction” involves stitching a welt to the upper and a strip of preformed canvas like a “rib” that runs all around and bottom (known as “gemming”) cemented to the insole of a shoe as an attach-point for the out sole or midsole (depending on the Goodyear welt variant). The space enclosed by the welt is then filled with cork for breathability), and the outsole is both cemented and stitched to the welt. This make the shoe, stronger, more sturdy and more comfortable.
We make our men’s shoes in Spain, the artisans working on our shoes have more than 50 years of experience in making men’s shoes. They mostly work with Goodyear welt, but also work with Blake welt and are passionate and very proud of what they deliver.
