Here we introduce the reverse patina.

Handcrafted patina is the technique which gives the shoes a vintage look. This means that with the time the color of the leather changes. There are two ways that the color changes on a pair of handmade shoes. Either the toe gets darker or lighter. With the reverse patina we imitate the second situation. We make the toe and the side lighter than the top.

All the patinas are hand crafted in our atelier in Hong Kong.

The model below is the Alba in Aubergine reverse and Acajou reverse patina.

The Alba is made in Spain with Italian calf leather on the PRS last which features a soft square toe.

But nice pictures speak more than words...
