Jacques & Déméter

Based in Cholet

A family workshop at the unique expertise developed since 1859 in Cholet (one of the historical cradles of the shoe) manufactures models from our wonderful leathers supplied by tanneries Puy and Degermann.

Tanned leathers extra slow (12 to 18 months in tank) for the soles coming from the tannery Garat & Fils. In short, a real dream-team of the luxury shoe French, could not be more qualified to make all our models, conceived and designed by us.
