About Traditional Aniline Dyed Leather
Martiniano makes all of their shoes using a careful traditional process with natural leather. They use kid leather and dye it with anilines, giving it a soft feel that retains the natural look of the leather. The handcrafted process intentionally shows the imperfections of each piece of leather, including the grain and visible pores. They do not cover the leather with paint, pigment, or anything else; they leave the leather "raw" and genuine.
In each pair of Martiniano shoes, you'll find some slight quirks and differences that arise from the handmade nature of the shoes. This is intentional, and you'll be able to enjoy a graceful pair that isn't cookie-cutter or machine-made. The special aniline dyeing process is also known for its softness and comfort, which in turn promotes its longevity.
Our Slow Fashion Philosophy
We prioritize a "slow fashion" process -- intentional, authentic designs that don't follow a trend. It's designed to use natural materials and ethical processes to grow with you throughout your life. All the designers at Auralie are working against fast fashion with their meticulous high-end craftsmanship, and Martiniano shoes are a shining example of this ethos.
