The production is made the same way as in 1923. Everything is made by hand and every slipper is unique!
Our shoes are manufactured in 4 steps:
Cutting, Stiching, Lasting and Finishing.
Cutting: Individual pieces are cut with stansknivar (molds/stencils similar to cookie cutters)
It was referred to as cutting as it was cut by hand with knives. Samples and limited edition series
Stitching: The process where all the different pieces are sown together.
Lasting: Här sätter man nåtlingen på läst, also referred to as sträckning. Wood or plastic is used, depending on the model.
Finishing: This entails the fastening of the sole and cutting away the excess around the sole (fräsning).
Further finishing and (avsyning) also done at this stage.
Nubuck is top-grain cattle rawhide leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside, to give a slight nap of short protein fibers, producing a velvet-like surface. It is resistant to wear, and may be white or coloured. Nubuck was used by cowboys as it was light and comfortable.
Nubuck is similar to suede, but its texture is finer. It differs in that suede is created from the inner side of a hide, whereas nubuck is created from the outer side of a hide, giving it more strength and thickness along with a fine grain. It is generally more expensive than suede, and must be coloured or dyed heavily to cover up the sanding and stamping process.
We also offer Jobstryck (print), a meticulously handprinted fabric. For more information, www.jobshandtryck.se.
