To make the Tallaje, we use both manual and mechanical techniques. Without neglecting the craftwork at any time, we have introduced some machines to speed up the manufacturing process and thus obtain a more affordable shoe. Using the best leathers and raw materials, we obtain a top quality product that is within everybody’s reach.
A & G manufactures their shoes with 100% vegetable-tanned bovine leather using extracts from plants such as quebracho and mimosa, which subsequently undergo a manual process of greasing, made up from giving the leathers different layers of natural grease and olive oil, work which is done individually and by hand, which is a fundamental difference with leathers that come from an industrial manufacturing process. And it gives the leather a flexibility and texture that are unique in this business.
This leather is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, which guarantees that it is free from heavy metals and any other substances that could be harmful when in contact with human skin.
Aguirre & Gross sells wholesale and can also design models for your handbags and shoes.
