Comfort zones

  • • Catuxa and Ignacio respect traditional methods
  • • Each pair of shoes requires over 50 hours of work
  • • All the components of their shoes are handmade

Architects Catuxa Fernández Viñas and Ignacio Aldanondo Segovia were always passionate about shoes and their evolution throughout the centuries. In 2011 they attended a shoe making summer course which led them to train with master artisans Josep Cunillera (“Pitu) and Carlos Piñol in Barcelona. After five years they became full-time artisans and opened their workshop. Their background encouraged them to search for balance between contemporary design and traditional craft. Each pair of shoes is carefully designed and handmade, both are adamant about achieving the utmost quality, paying attention to every single detail of the process. No stock is foreseen, reducing the amount of waste in material to achieve a timeless and long lasting product, unique in design and comfort.
