Founded 1955 in Italy
Based in Camerata Picena

From the start, the production focused on fine slippers and clogs. Farfalla is increasingly a market leader in this sector thanks to elegant and sober styles and the quality of the raw materials and workmanship. The entrepreneurial and managerial adventure continues to this day to be entrusted from father to son, creating a perfect balance between tradition and innovation. Stefano and Nicola Raffaeli, young and dynamic businessmen, have shown remarkable skill in combining modern managerial requisites with traditional craftsmanship.

Farfalla is a shoemaker, more than just a company: it is the perfect fusion of tradition, elegance and passion, a brand name which describes the lightness and the class of its indoor and outdoor Italian slippers. Skilled Italian craftsmanship and carefully selected raw materials have led the company to a solid and simple approach to production founded on experience acquired over many years and supported by modern management. Farfalla style is thus elegance and sobriety, which transcend fashion and time. A discrete range based on the quality of raw materials and which makes its place in the heart of those who discover it.
