Salvatore Ferragamo women’s shoes

The use of original materials was a hallmark for Ferragamo, whose answer to the wartime shortage of hides was to introduce materials never-before used for fashion footwear, such as cork and cellophane. Nowadays there are constantly evolving technologies to help man in his work and improve it. Since the Sixties, enormous work has been done at Ferragamo to serialize made to measure footwear, to the extent of producing more than eighty fittings per model. Most of the manufacturing stages are done by machine, but the machine is always guided by man’s experienced hand.
Today, the use of new eco-friendly or recycled materials is the great challenge being taken on by many fashion and design companies.
