L'bardi driving loafers in the making! The leather is stretched over the last (the form) by hand and then nailed in place, a process known as hand lasting. The loafers are then hand stitched while on the last, the ultimate expression of Italian craftsmanship #Lbardi #madeinitaly
The 'Last' of a shoe is what defines its shape. At L'bardi, we hand last our shoes, which involves stretching the leather over the last by hand, nailing it in place and then stitching it completely by hand.
