Officine Creative stands for high-quality Italian shoemaking and leather techniques. The brand was founded back in 1968 during the Golden Era of Italian shoemaking and starting with producing some truly innovative creations during that time.
The label is well-known for being unbound by convention and driven by innovation in order to offer traditionally crafted artisanal footwear and leather goods fused with a modern unorthodox design aesthetic. Dynamic, high-quality beautiful products that evoke nostalgic memories of a long lost time when craftsmanship was paramount, a sensibility often lost In today’s fast-fashion consumerism and industrialized mass-market mentality.
Natural horsehides, over-dyed Buffalo and organic Vachetta are typical of the skins utilized, and transforming these raw organic materials into wearable sculptures is at the heart of each Officine Creative product.
The label has become globally recognized as an originator of the washed / object dyed method of advanced artisanal leather treatments. By using a closely guarded formula of natural dyes together with the ‘Bottale’ washing technique the workshop artisans have perfected a uniquely identifiable signature look over many years resulting in each product its signature patina.
