Old school charm meets modern styling and production.
Brunate has always paid great attention to all stages of the manufacturing process. Technical experts
follow every detail with meticulous attention, in order to maintain the highest level of product quality.
This is where every shoe starts out. Designers and technicians set up the last, make detailed drawings of the upper, soles and heels and decide what the shoe will look like and how it will made.
The process of leather cutting can be realized by hand or by using computer aided cutting machines.
The secret of this phase is in the cutters ability of leather selection.
This is where the individual parts of the upper are assembled. Depending on the model, well over
50 parts may be involved before the upper is complete.
The process begins by fastening the upper to the insole and the last. The shoe is then passed through
an oven that dries leather and glue. The shoe in then bonded to the outsole by with special adhesives.
The shoe will then run through a special press machine that ensures perfect matching and assembly
between upper and outsole. The heel is fastened to the sole and the shoe is then sent to the finishing
phase where it is cleaned, ironed with hot steam, polished with special creams and brushed.
All the shoe’s components are given one final check. The shoe is given a general visual inspection
and checked for scratches. Left and right feet must match perfectly. Only after this thorough final
check is the protective fabric travel bag applied. The shoe is boxed and shipped.
