Custom Order For Donna

Description

Custom order for Donna for one pair of closed back pointed toe promenaders in antique French crimson/ Grisaille toile with mirrored bird motifs. Embellishment to be discussed and confirmed once shoe is made.

50% deposit to confirm (£160), balance plus shipping payable when finished and ready to ship (8-10 weeks) 

The fabric is mounted on a soft suede inner lining. Sole and 1cm block heel are man-made.

The ingredients Please be aware that these shoes are created from antique textiles, which have often had a previous life extending back centuries, so consequently there may be the odd minor smudge or tiny pin prick to the surface of the fabric. These in no way impinge on their beauty, and you can be sure that they do not compromise the integrity of the material. Any little area of actual damage or thinning is repaired with a tiny embroidered patch (one of my favourite features!), and this is always clearly mentioned in the description.  

The textile has been treated with an eco-friendly stain guard, based on nano-technology, (and containing absolutely none of those hideous PFOAs that have been slowly poisoning the environment over the last 70 years) which will help to protect the surface of the textile, but it should be noted that these antique materials need to be respected and treated with care.

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to read both our shipping and refund policy pages before placing an order (links to both at foot of page). By placing an order you are indicating you have read and accepted these terms.

 

Sustainability Every time a pair of shoes is purchased a donation is made via Ecologi to both offset the carbon involved in production and shipping and make a positive net contribution to combatting climate change....that's 10 trees planted per pair.

Packaging Each pair of shoes is nestled in a high quality presentation box made from 92% recycled materials which can be wholly recycled at end of life (once ribbon and magnetic closure have been removed and recycled separately). Essential as recycling is, it is not carbon neutral, so I wanted the boxes to have as long an after-life as possible. The sturdy construction and minimal branding make them really attractive keepsake and storage boxes that hopefully will prove useful for many years to come. The lid is handstamped with our beautiful calligraphy logo, and zig-zag shred (made from non-coated recyclable bio-degradable paper) is used for the protective padding.
