Have you ever wondered why our shoes are meticulously handmade in Portugal? While it’s true that there are skilled shoe artisans scattered across the globe, only a select few are willing to push themselves beyond their comfort zones.
We were in search of a partner who shares our passion for innovation and creativity, someone who isn’t afraid to take risks and experiment with us. We sought out artisans who could help us craft one-of-a-kind shoes that break the mold of the typical leather footwear found in most stores.
And it is in Portugal where we discovered these remarkable individuals. Not only do they possess the requisite expertise and craftsmanship, but they also possess an insatiable appetite for exploration and collaboration. By working with them, we have been able to bring our vision to life in ways that we never could have imagined.
Combination of Textile with Leather
Crafting our designs at Liebre Style poses a challenge even for the most skilled artisans. Merging textiles and leather with expertise is no small feat. But that’s exactly what we aim to do – create something extraordinary, something that transcends mere footwear or bags and approaches the realm of fine art.
Each of our Liebre Style designs has a distinct tale to tell. Take, for instance, a model inspired by the tranquil low-tides of Scotland. The intricate hand-woven tweed used in its construction captures the essence of this rugged landscape, making every pair truly one-of-a-kind. Another design is an homage to the timeless elegance of gentlemen’s ties, featuring a sumptuous silk from the famed Como region of Italy.
Our shoe artisans in Portugal possess a deep understanding of the significance of each of our unique designs. They approach their craft with a meticulous attention to detail and a profound reverence for the story behind each model. By handcrafting every shoe with the utmost care, they bring our vision to life in a way that truly captures the essence of Liebre Style.
In the world of shoe-making, Portugal stands out as a shining example of tradition and excellence. The small, family-owned ateliers scattered across the country still adhere to the time-honored process of crafting superb leather shoes – without ever taking any shortcuts.
For years, the phrase “Made in Portugal” has been synonymous with outstanding craftsmanship in the industry.
When you hold a Liebre Style creation in your hands, the first thing you’ll notice is the impeccable finish. The quality of the materials, the intricate stitching – every detail is a testament to our unwavering commitment to creating products that are built to last for generations, especially when given proper care.
This level of excellence is only possible because of the passion and dedication of our Portuguese artisans.
Not Interested in Mass Production
At Liebre Style, our goal is to create accessories that aren’t just beautiful, but that become an integral part of your life and your identity. We strive to craft pieces that are cherished and cared for, designed to stand the test of time. That’s why we believe that it’s illogical to have hundreds of people walking around in the exact same shoes as you.
Unfortunately, during our search for artisans, we encountered a frustrating trend. Most of them were only interested in churning out massive quantities of footwear. Our unique designs and vision for Liebre Style were often disregarded if we weren’t willing to order hundreds or even thousands of shoes.
Thankfully, our artisans in Portugal share our unwavering commitment to making the world a more diverse and unique place. They recognize the value in creating small batches of each design, prioritizing the meaning and quality of each shoe over the quantity produced.
We take pride in the fact that every one of our shoes is meticulously handmade in Portugal, and we’re thrilled to share our vision with the world.
