Fratelli Borgioli

Founded 1946 in Italy
Based in Florence

Hailing from the heart of Tuscany and with a heritage of seventy years of quality craftsmanship, Fratelli Borgioli started making shoes in a small workshop in 1946.

The company grew in size over the years, but the handicraft spirit and determination that distinguished the production from the start remains unchanged. From the cutting of leathers to the closing and making, the process includes a minimum of 180 separate steps done by 100 hands. The manufacturing facility has 30 artisan workers.

The processes and the tradition of Fratelli Borgioli's shoes represent classic Tuscan shoe craftsmanship.
