Pantelleria is a moccasin with tassels made using a bag process to avoid all rigid components and create a very soft and foldable shoe. It is possible to recognize this type of workmanship simply by touch: the shoe folds easily in two using only the strength of the thumb and forefinger.
Full grain crust calf leather
Full grain leather is one of the most valuable materials, because it constitutes the superficial layer of the animal's epidermis and has not undergone particular processes that have altered its natural appearance. Precisely for this reason it maintains the original features of the coat: natural signs such as scars or stretch marks which give naturalness, authenticity and recognisability to the product.
Furthermore, in this case the calfskin comes from the tannery in the "CRUST" version, that is, semi-finished, raw. This allows us to carry out more personalized and manual processes such as the "chestnut" color dyeing for this model.
Leather with non-slip rubber clip
Leather is a resistant, hygienic, durable and reusable material. Its characteristics remain unchanged for a long time and the passing of time helps to make it more aesthetically beautiful. Rubber clips are injected into the leather so as not to slip, while still maintaining the breathability properties of the leather, obtaining the iconic Ciccone sole.
More than 200 steps are needed to complete the "bag" process: a lining is created, then sewn around the last, worked and joined to the upper. We then move on to the "ironing" which is carried out on a form heated and beaten by hand by a master craftsman. A padded and breathable material is inserted between the lining and the sole. Finally, the lining and footbed are sewn to the upper creating a single body to improve comfort.
