Choosing the ingredients is an important first step in the process. We use 100% Chinese silk, the kind that long made Shanghai tailors the envy of the world.
Artisans take my designs and transfer them onto see-through rice paper. This helps guide the sewing team through the all-important job of making each hand-sewn pattern look perfect.
Silk that will become the interior is cut into sheets for molding later. This process helps form a basis for the comfort that is built into the slippers.
The material comes into shape as a shoe during the cutting process. Care ensures lines are straight.
The individual spirit that goes into my slippers extends right to the floor, as leather soles are stitched together.
