Introducing the stunning Friulana model, with a pointed toe and open heel, handmade from luxurious damask silk in beautiful aquamarine and yellow hues. The shoes feature a typical stitched rubber sole, ensuring both style and durability.
Originally hailing from the mountains of Carnia, Friulane shoes quickly became popular in Venice due to their practicality and uniqueness. The first to wear them were gondoliers, who needed shoes that wouldn't damage their gondolas' precious lacquer. Soon, Venetian nobles started wearing them as a fashion statement.
This exclusive product is entirely made in Italy, using a rich garnet-colored cotton-silk embossed velvet. The shoes have a regular European fit. As a limited edition item, these Friulane shoes are truly a special addition to any wardrobe.
