Cencetak in cotton velvet, the name derives from the Latin term “vellus” or sheep's fleece, as the velvet has a soft and hairy surface. One of the most expensive fabrics of antiquity is the most typical of the fabrics with which the "friulane" are made out of. The timeless and classic Cencetak in velvet are elegant with any combination.
As with all our shoes, these too can be enriched with accessories such as Swarowsky brooches (available in the section "Accessories").
Cencetak are handcrafted shoes also called “scarpets” or “friuliane” made in Friuli Venezia Giulia, following a tradition that has lasted for more than 200 years. As in the past, these shoes are constructed without glue, exclusively through seams and finished by hand.
The Cencetak are resistant as they are reinforced with a cotton interfabric and a high density of stitches on the sole and on the edges. The inner lining of Cencetak shoes is always in 100% silk or for some more sporty pairs in cotton.
Each pair of "Friulane" is unique, as it is a hand-made artisan product.
Small imperfections confirm the manual production.
