Damaris Vrandecic is based in Menorca, a Mediterranean island with a strong shoemaking tradition. The fine materials used in her shoes are treated in a most undorthodox fashion - leather is washed, boiled, wrinkled, and manipulated to create unusual textures. Organic matter is combined with gold, oxidized brass, or silver. Each piece is a unique item or part of a very limited batch, assembled entirely by hand, and almost always with her signature ribbon laces.
Silk taffeta with vegetable tanned cow hide soles, hand-stitched with linen thread. 1 1/4" polished wood heel and silk laces. Handmade in Menorca, Spain.
