What ‘Made in Italy’ means in footwear:
Many inspirations, one artisanal heritage
The fashion labels featured on BLANCAH come from all around the world. Each brand has a unique history and perspective and creates their collections from a diverse range of inspirations. But there is one key aspect that unites them all: the ‘Made in Italy’ heritage.
There are many reasons luxury footwear giants send their design sketches to be made in Italy. Chief among them is the availability of top-quality leathers. From sourcing to tanning, Italian leather producers lean on centuries of tradition in the development of footwear’s premier material and have invented techniques to craft beautiful leather that stands up to time.
Another reason luxury brands choose Italian manufacturers to craft their incredible designs is the artisans’ technical mastery. The world’s leading designers know that they can let their imaginations run free and the craftsmen and women in Italy have the background and skills to construct their visions in three dimensions.
The long history of Italian craftsmanship is what gives luxury fashion houses the confidence to push boundaries. The first BLANCAH footwear edit presents unique pieces from Elie Saab, Proenza Schouler, Rochas, Brock Collection and Francesco Russo.
