THE ART OF SHOEMAKING
Sylth Virago's shoes are meticulously crafted in Italy's finest shoe factories. These family-owned businesses prioritize their employees and their unrivaled skills, using hand-crafted techniques that imbue every pair with unique character. The artistry and attention to detail these artisans put into their work is a testament to the brand's commitment to creating exceptional footwear.
With their second collection, Sylth Virago continues their tradition of excellence in Portugal, a country renowned for its exceptional craftsmanship and quality. The brand's dedication to innovation means that they are always exploring new and sustainable materials to use in their footwear. Each pair is crafted with the same care and precision, resulting in shoes that are both luxurious and ethical.
Sylth Virago's new shoes feature innovative Vegea grape leather, made in Italy using the country's wine waste. This vegan material reduces waste from winemaking, using grape skins and seeds. By incorporating this material into their shoes, the brand is taking sustainability one step further.
All shoes, both current and future, use Keifer Von Zoe insoles, which are made from an innovative 100% cellulose board that is both recyclable and biodegradable. These eco-friendly insoles help to reduce waste and ensure that the brand's sustainability goals are met.
The microfiber material used to shape the back of the shoe is both durable and sustainable. Much of the waste from production is reintroduced, ensuring minimal waste and reduced environmental impact. The brand is always looking for new, innovative materials that meet their sustainability goals while also maintaining their commitment to quality craftsmanship.
