Here's a new video all about the materials we use:


Shoes with Stories

The collection is based on a theory of re-using and re-working vintage materials in a creative and sustainable way, hand making gorgeous, feminine shoes to fit.

These materials are primarily vintage Japanese kimono fabrics: relics of a disappearing world, saturated in significance and hidden meanings.

The colours and folds signify various seasons, occasion, status and personal taste of the wearer.

The designer hand selects the most exquisite antique fabrics to use as uppers for handmade shoes to create unique footwear.

The designs are simple, yet provocative, designed to make the foot appear more attractive. The collaboration of colours, materials, service and directional design result in unique, wearable footwear.
