Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
・In the case of Goodyear stitching, since we perform blind stitch, we use the leather for the toe box.
・After having attached it, lasted it and adjust the shape, we further polish the shoe with a rasp.
・After the chain stitch, we attach the shank.
・As for Norwegian-style stitching, we keep the upper in place, add an intermediate sole and perform the second sewing.
We always put a reinforcement in the internal side of the “eyestay”, that is the part connected with the strings (photo on the left).
・In case we wish to add some garnish on the facing etc., the whole part will need to be sewn by hand, and for this reason it’s a very time-consuming task (central photo) .
・As the way to remove the paper patter varies greatly according to the shoe model, when students explore a new model they constantly check with the instructor on how to proceed
