Our project

The Pedü project stems from the desire to restore value to a craft knowledge, which risked being lost, and to keep alive a cultural heritage, handed down from generation to generation, among the families of Valmalenco, in Valtellina.

" We used to buy the patches for the Pedü at Quirino’s". - Elena -

"Our family was composed of 8 people and our mother was always busy in making the Peduli". - Agnese -

"We were so many people in our family, there were no shoes and we had to make the Peduli". - Ancilla -

"During the war we had to go to Sondrio to get the bread, we used to walk from home with the Peduli and they didn't hurt our feet." - Angela -

Thanks to expertise, witnessingand knowledgehanded down by the four art masters from Valmalenco, who are the keepers of the Pedü tradition, the young apprentices have been able to learn the secrets that have always made these shoes unique.

Commitment, passion and the value of the project have allowed the young apprentices to become the seamstresses who today expertly pack the Pedü in our laboratory, according to tradition.

Learn about the Pedü project at the Sondrio Vocational School for training young female students.

Our project was born from the discovery of a pair of old Pedü in the attic of the family hut. And thanks to numerous experiments, collaborations, mergers of knowledge and expertise, these shoes have come back to your feet today as high-quality handmade footwear, manufactured with natural and eco-friendly materials.

By supporting this project, it is possible to keep alive an oldand equallyprecious craft knowledge.
