Boots on Display

Home From Home


Our collections are lovingly made by Spanish artisans who care passionately about their craft and whose knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation. As a brand, we believe in preserving these rare manufacturing techniques and incorporate them into our collections. Our factories are family-owned - many of them experts in the footwear construction known as the Goodyear welt. This Victorian method is generally used to make men’s formal shoes but is also synonymous with our brand and its reputation for high quality and comfort.

Classic With A Twist

It’s all in the detail. Our collections draw on the history of equestrian design bridging traditional techniques with contemporary design and style.  We add authentic detail such as  ‘Caramelo’ stitching and punched leather brogue design to natural and treated leathers to create modern interpretations of the classics.

The Process I

Cutting the patterns is a skill itself. Although we sew on machines and use heavy machinery, we consider our products to be made by
hand - many skilled hands.

The Process III

Here below, follow the Goodyear welt process -  a footwear construction originating in the Victorian era and most commonly associated with traditional men’s shoes. The majority of our collection is produced using this construction, ensuring that our styles have flexibility, comfort and longevity.

The Process V

Our products are finished by hand with love and care. We choose to manufacture close to home, in Spain, to keep our carbon footprint low. Only biodegradable materials are used in our packaging and we never pack with plastic. Leather and fabric offcuts are never thrown away but used instead to create new products for our seasonal Waste Not Want Not collections.
