"Shoemaking is an art lost in depths of time. Our country had always excellent technicians. Their knowledge soon expanded abroad and they were established as the best in the world ".

The shoemaker's
GIORGIO MERIANO is one of the last still standing.Here we continue to manufacture handmade shoes with the same love devition and technics just like the older ones.

The phases of manufacture from the measurments of the feet till the finishing is done by experienced technicians in our lab.


                                        MEASURMENTS OF THE FEET

We take the print of the foot. We count the area of toes, kountepie and pasagio. We also find the exact size of the foot . During the measurment we mark any malformations or other problems on the feet (bunions, overlapping toes etc) with a special platform (pelmatograpf) were we analyse the way of walking.


                                        MANUFACTURE THE MOULD
 
Since we have the results we move on to the manufacture of the mould. On the mould we'll print all the measurments and other marks (f.e sheath for bunions) in order to create the shoe.


                                           CREATE DESIGN AND STAMB

On the mould we create the design we wish where an experienced designer creates the needed pieces of the stamb in order to cut the leather.


                                                           CUT

During the cut we choose the right leather. The responsible chooses among many others the best leathers. He chooses the point that must be cut acoording to the "waves" of the leather and then when the shoe is usrd it won't lose its shape.

                                                          SEAM

After the pieces are cut they are ready for seam. The seam of these pieces (called fondi) is very important for the best result.


                                          MANUFACTURE (MONTARISMA)

From the previous evening we put the fortia into water. It's the part that goes in the back of the shoe to keep the shape. After leaving it in the water we spread a special glue and then put it into the fondi.
That's a technic used many years ago. Then the experienced technician uses his pincers and creates it in hand on the mould. THen we leave it for 3-4days to dry up. The shoe will be in shape after many uses.


                                                          FINISH

This is the last part. We spread the shoe with special custards from bee wax to feed and moisture the leather. And then we clean it from any remainsand the shoe is ready.



These are the phases we manufacture a handmade shoe..
