At Ignacio and Catuxa’s shoe handmaking workshop in Barcelona, each pair of Aldanondo y Fdez is produced under request.
The artisan shoemaker necessarily masters the techniques of leather work. In Aldanondo y Fdez, those skills are also combined with a taste for design and technical pattern making. The design mindset comes form architecture, the previous profession of these two master shoemakers.
Shoemaking is a discipline with many processes that you must know how to execute. This is the only way to guarantee the highest-quality expected from craftsmanship. Aldanondo y Fdez workshop is committed to the artisan method and its values.
The workshop at Notariat Street reserves a space for a showroom where customers can see, touch and try on the creations of Aldanondo y Fdez.
This space preserves the cosy atmosphere of former years when the atelier was kept in a home. With its bookshelf full of architecture or design books and a comfortable sofa, customers can be taken measurements and shop in a relaxed way. Visits are welcome by appointment.
