The Making Of A Handmade Shoe

This short film takes you inside Bontoni’s ‘Casa e Bottega’ (home-based workshop) where everyone takes great pride in working with their hands. Discover some of our key construction and hand-coloring processes.

Cutting Patterns

A short film underscoring how important the process of pattern cutting is with respect to creating a shoe.  The precision of the cuts is extremely important for ensuring that a given pattern is optimal for both a particular last and size of a particular model.  

Weaving The Thread

A very short film on the process of creating the threads for our Norwegian constructions.  Depending upon the thickness of desired thread, our artisans will take a certain number of individual strands to weave them tightly together with beeswax.  It’s a very laborious and time-consuming process.

Polishing To Perfection

Hand-Punching Sizes
