Leather braiding is a technique that requires a great deal of know-how: the leather is braided by hand to produce a perfect shape, a precise process that requires skills, attention... and time. Every detail counts to achieve a flexible but solid weave. The hand-woven leather is of a rare solidity. Impossible to slide your fingers through this braiding, even if it is not double-lined as with Kate for example.

Woven leather is a durable material, but it needs regular maintenance to stay in good condition. Here are some tips on how to care for your woven leather shoes:

1. Clean your shoes regularly with a soft, damp cloth to remove dust and dirt. If dust remains, a small brush can help remove it.

2. To keep the leather in good condition, regularly apply a cream to your shoes.

3. For the shine, a classic shoe cream will be enough to revive the colours and the shine of the leather. Do not hesitate to use a pair of shoe trees so that the braided leather does not deform.

4. Let your shoes naturally air dry, away from any direct heat source. Avoid getting your shoes wet as much as possible, as this could damage the leather.
