OBJECT : LAUNCHING THE FIRST HAND MADE FOOTWEAR COLLECTION




Object's limited edition footwear is designed in England and created entirely in a small town in the heart of the Marche footwear district in Italy. Object's creations utilise time tested processes and techniques, working exclusively with the finest materials producing footwear of the highest quality. The Leather skins are cut entirely by hand and produced by expert craftsmen. This allows the ideas, shapes and finishing to materialise through the unique designs.


The colouring of the footwear is entirely made by hand and allowing the shoe to dry naturally, turning it into a living and changeable material. The footwear is washed with water and honing pebbles in order to create a look that appears aged and used. The footwear is then returned to the moulds that retain the desired shape and left to dry naturally. This process can take days.


Brushing the footwear, a crucial phase of "antiquing" is carried out by a master who understands the value of creating signature footwear. Specific brushes and ageing waxes are used for each material.


The finishing process of the footwear take time, skill and dedication. The work is complete and embodies everything that is the tradition of tradition of Italian craftsmanship.
