If you’re looking for Italy’s finest in shoes, then the highlight is on Moreschi. With its history of 55 years, the brand has made itself known in time as an exceptional artisan, taking pride in making some of the finest Italian shoes.
Started in 1946 as a small workshop, the firm grew bigger and bigger every year and eventually became almost synonymous with high quality, hand made Italian leather shoes.
The company’s artists manually work each shoe and every day, over one thousand new pairs roll out of their manufacturing floor.
A wee bit about the manufacturing process
The life of every Moreschi shoe starts with the cutting of the leather. It’s a precise deal what we’re talking about here. Each pair is made from 8 to 24 different pieces leather, and each must have the precise shape and color needed, otherwise it all goes kaput.
They go to great lengths to make sure they use only the best quality leather. We’re interested in premium quality stuff, after all.
Next stop is the sewing part.. Now that’s where the artisan’s tallent really kicks in. Over half of the whole manufacturing process is the tailoring part and you really need super qualified people to do the job.
And if that’s not hard enough, parts of moccasins can only be sown by hand.
With the upper part of the shoe pretty much completed, all that’s left to do is to add the sole and the finishing touches that will make the everybody turn their heads for you.
