Le Morettine

Le-Morettine-Donna-blu-grigioThey were and are traditionally made ​​in the countryside of our region, Friuli-Venezia Giulia (in the North East of Italy) by employing waste materials such as old bicycle tires to make waterproof sole, jute bags for padding the sole, fabrics and rags, old clothes obtained by chance, for the uppers. Born as makeshift shoes, home-made at no cost, to replace the economically unattainable leather shoes, they are a typical example of an object that contains history, culture and tradition and at the same time is projected into the future.

Le-Morettine-Donna-pavoniNowadays imagination and creativity have adapted these shoes to every occasion, from work to leisure. They are handcrafted, sophisticated and elegant slippers that are at the same time luxurious shoes, redesigned from the ancient tradition of Friuli and shaped into in multiple forms.

Thanks to the various fabrics employed (linen, cotton, wool, silk), which are strictly made ​​in Italy, and to the drawings, which range from the classic to the particular, the Morettine have become a way to enhance a dress or a pair of trousers, to make a precious moment even more special and to treat yourself to a daily pleasure.

Le-Morettine-Donna-velluto-lavoratoThe different models allow you to match these comfortable and stylish footwear with every daily need as well as with the current style: for ladies, the classic model is closed-wrap-around, while shoe slippers are reminiscent of the eighteenth century; for men the range of models go from the very traditional to more modern shoes.
