HANDCRAFTED SINCE 1945
At Mariano, Portuguese traditional craftsmanship meets with innovation - one pair at a time.
CRAFTING AN IDEA
Our artisans hand-cut each piece using only the highest quality leather from the most reputable eco-friendly tanneries.
THE FIRST STEPS
This stage involves several highly skilled and delicate operations such as hand sewing, machine stitching and crafting perforated patterning for our brogues.
Mastery of Form
Here, experienced hands apply the carefully closed upper to our crafted sole and layered heel, through an exact number of stitches to give maximum strength to the shoe.
True to tradition
True to the spirit of Mariano, all leather soles are manufactured and assembled by our craftsmen. For rubber soles we select the best manufacturers worldwide.
The Last touch
This is where it all comes together. The colourist’s patina is applied and each shoe is carefully finished and meticulously inspected. An individually crafted masterpiece is born.
