Artisan-Hand Made Patina: The technique used to achieve this artwork is known as ‘Anticatura’, which is the Italian word for antique finishing. It is a specialty of Italian and French maestro shoemakers. Entrusted to the hands of the antique finisher, the upper part of the shoe becomes a work of art. The Anticatura method is a hand dyeing procedure of leather. It takes about 8-10 hours of work per pair to create a completely unique patina with an aged effect.

Lead Time

How long will my order take to be produced?

  • The usual production time is about 3-5 weeks. Please remember that you are purchasing a made-to-order item, that is to say, your item is not produced in advance, every part of it will be hand-crafted, exclusively for you, after submitting your order. 
  • Also, please bear in mind that some customizations and artisan methods (i.e Patina Finishing) are more time consuming than others.
  • This method of production is the most efficient business model and we pass this efficiency onto you with our highly competitive pricing structure.
  • It also enables us to offer you such a vast array of product designs on top of any custom designs that you might create!

About Patinas

What is Patina Leather?

  • Our Patina leathers are achieved through a range of techniques for colouring, bleaching and darkening the leather.
  • This is an entirely handmade process using various polishes, dyes, waxes and oils. Each of our patina creations, be it a pair of shoes, a belt or a cigar case, are the result of this labour intensive manual process.
  • For this reason there may be slight variations from one product to the next – this is to be embraced as these variations are a part of what gives a patina leather product its unique depth of character and soul.
  • Patina finishing is also known as antiquing and it does indeed give a product a “lived-in” appearance.
  • On our customisation Workbench you may alter the intensity of each patina finish – the more intense the patina, the greater the contrast.
