Take a look into the life of Creative Director and founder Nelissa Hilman. She takes us on the journey of producing a pair of shoes. Marie Claire was lucky to be invited into a shoe factory run by local artisans where each pair is handcrafted using time-honoured techniques.
Nelissa starts drawing her shoe design.
She then chooses the colours for her shoe designs.
