inspiration...shoes & maps


Please watch this beautiful video of Barbora Veselá, a London based footwear designer and maker creating a pair of shoes. I love her map/nature inspiration and use of leather, texture, color, and delicate craft. The beautiful moving images and styling create such an inspiring (and calming) piece.

Project is taking inspiration from sediment layers and from effects of erosive processes in nature as well as from traditional shoe making techniques. Special construction method has been developed and used across the collection. Multiple layers of leather scrap pieces are added on the last and subsequently sanded down to achieve the final shape and unique colour pattern of the shoe. Colour scheme is influenced by old geological maps.
