Culture and tradition lies at the heart
of Friulane footwear...
Friulane footwear was born at the end of the Second World War, in the Friuli region in north-eastern Italy.
Women made these shoes from different materials, such as velvet or hessian. To make the soles, they retrieved and recycled bicycle tyres.
Later, in Venice, it was the gondoliers who adopted them because of their comfort but also for their rubber soles, which didn’t damage the varnish on the gondolas.
