CRAFTSMANSHIP AND HERITAGE
FAMILY OF ITALIAN ARTISANS
The ReyRey capsule collections are handmade in the famous valleys of Porto Sant’Elpidio in Northern Italy also called “Shoe Valley”. The boot country is world-renowned for their century long heritage of fine craftsmanship. By manufacturing in Italy, we can secure that the artisans delivers high quality while receiving the lawful right wage and social welfare through carefully inspection.
ReyRey is proud to work with a small family business. The family has a life long experience in fine craftsmanship in the luxury shoe industry. Not only do they deliver an exceptional high standard in the making of shoes, they also have an unique approach to how to run a business. People are valued much higher than new machinery and this is a value ReyRey appreciates deeply. This human-way-of-business makes the ReyRey shoes true pieces of art. A ReyRey shoe is a result of joint workmanship by artisans with their individual life-long expertise and experience rather than a product of new technology and machinery.
SHAPING THE FUTURE WITH PAST SHOE MOULDS
Shoe moulds are wooden forms the artisans use to shape the leather shoe inside. Different from other shoe companies ReyRey only use pre-existing shoe moulds as the development of new moulds is a long and polluting process with a lot of waist product. In close collaboration with our Italian shoe artisans, founder Rey Abadi handpicks the vintage moulds she see fit. By this ReyRey utilizes already existing resources and shapes a modern capsule of shoes on the basis of many years of past experience and excellence.
We take pride in only working with ICEC certified manufactures that secure a complete
transparent and legal manufacturing process within three important categories; environmental, social and economic sustainability. ICEC is the only Certification Institute in Europe and worldwide, which is specific for the leather sector. ICEC is accredited by ACCREDIA to issue certifications.
