the working process

AGO (GLUED)

A special adhesive is used to secure the upper to the insole, and then to the sole.

CALIFORNIA

A handmade process whereby the upper is stitched to the soft insole to create a kind of sock into which the form is inserted.  A band is stitched into the profile of the insole which is later turned upside down to cover a wedge sole.  This process assures the extraordinary flexibility, softness and lightweight characteristics of the shoe.


HAND STITCHING

An intricate procedure done by a highly skilled artisan that joins the upper, the insole, and the sole with handstitching using a special needle and a continuous thread.  The visible stitching is also a decorative feature that requires great skill in achieving uniform stitches.  With this handstitching process each and every shoe is unique.

AMERICAN SOLE 

A special production whereby the upper, the insole and the sole are stitched together in reverse; while a small opening remains at the end for the insertion of the wedge, at the heel and felt at the front.  Subsequently a special machine closes the opening, the upper is turned again, and the shoe is ready to go onto the last.  This process is typically used in the production of slippers and renders a very flexible, soft and lightweight result, with no visible stitching.


MOCCASIN

This method of construction consists of a shoe that wraps the entire foot from below, leaving only the top area open.  The perimeter of the upper will be stitched with a “pucker” stitch to make up the “toecap”.  This stitching is visible and generally done by hand. This process insures a very flexible and comfortable shoe that is timeless in fashion.
