MEET THE MAKER:

Laura, Director of quality control

LAURA is responsible for overseeing every step of production at our shoe factory and making sure quality control problems get resolved. She was born into a shoemaking family on the Italian island of Sardinia and grew up in her father’s workshop. She started working at 14 with her sister and over the years, her curiosity led her to learn every job in the shoemaking process. Laura now lives two streets from the factory (and walks home for lunch with her family every day!)

THE CRAFT

LASTMAKING

The last is the form of the foot that provides the shape and fit of every shoe. Lastmaking is an ancient, precise art form, and we are incredibly lucky to work with the very best and oldest last supplier in Italy, in business since 1942. Francesco, our lastmaker, is a true master of his craft. He hand-carves the first last out of wood and it gradually takes shape, millimeter by millimeter, until it’s perfect.
