Our production process
6 Essential Steps
1. Sourcing the materials
Before you finalize your order we are already searching for the perfect material for your product. After our customers decide on the material that they want, we start cutting, using the specific Undandy shoe model and style, ready for the next step.
2. Cut and Sew
We start by creating the pattern for each pair of shoes, following specific instructions regarding the seamstresses to follow. Then we pass to the construction of the first sample which results, after the client approbation, into the making of the product.
The insoles are nailed onto the shoe with the appliance of the toe and counter cuff passing to the next phase that is the fitting of the shoe upper, made in the previous step. In this way, the toe and instep are shaped and the heel is attached to give the form to the shoe.
To give the shoe its final and best structure it is applied the shank, the supportive part of the shoe between the insole and outsole, giving the shoe its final structure and arch support. At last the sole is attached to the shoe, giving a flexible lightweight feel to the sole.
In this step, gradual layers of paint are applied meticulously, adding an aged charming feel to the shoe.
Lastly, the shoe is polished and buffed to perfection so then it can be delicately wrapped and packed.
