Gravati was founded in 1909 with the sole aim of designing and making high quality shoes. Our shoes are made by skilled artisans and technicians who, through thorough market research, create an always up-to-date product, characterised by a classical and refined style.

The lasts are made to assure maximum comfort and have been created to fit the requirements of every individual market. A wide range of skins is also available in every kind of production; calf, kangaroo, kid, deerskin, peccary, ostrich, alligator, teyus and many more. All the manufactured shoes are carefully inspected before leaving the factory and are sold in the most prestigious boutiques and stores all over the world.
