Wearing a pair of handmade shoes is the conscious choice of a person for whom time, history and know-how are fundamental values both in [ life and in footwear ] |.

Edhèn [ e d ɛ n ] p. s. transfers these values in a shoe, completely made in Italy that keeps artisan production techniques handed down by generations of manufacturers |.

In fact, our artisans, [ men and women who have made leather manufacturing their life and their profession ], give life to a shoe made of extraordinary quality and aesthetic harmony |.
After more than 200 manual steps and 10 days of workmanship, from the production to the rest period, what was previously only a sketch, a model, materializes into one of our shoes |.
Everything begins with the choice of the materials: leather, fabrics, accessories and soles are the raw materials of a top-quality product |.

Next is the cut: the outline of the shoe is traced on leather that will give life to the shoe upper after the skiving and binding. [ Just like a sketch for a painter ], an artisan paves the way with the cut, which will become the finished product. The prepared upper is shaped while the bottom is subsequently sewn with Blake technique to ensure maximum resistance and comfort to the shoe |.

The shoe is now ready to be hand-painted: with an infinite spectrum of colors, the shoe is colored with artistry and accurate brushstrokes giving life to a three-dimensional, unique, and different from pair to pair color. The model has now taken shape: the press embeds the logo on the insole with a [ gold leaf ] and lastly the elephant patch under the sole, as if it were a symbol to sanction the end of this long work cycle |.

Now for the shoe, [ like for the craftsman ], it’s time to rest: with the pose the shoe takes on its final shape, ready to be placed in the iconic Edhèn blue box |.

All this takes place in Parabiago [ Milano ] where the craftsmanship of making shoes became an art |.
That is how an Edhèn shoe is created |.
