My work is my passion!

Hello and welcome!

Come, visit me in my studio!


I'm Eleonora, Italian shoe designer, I design and personally craft leather shoes and accessories in an artisan, slow and handmade way, one by one, with great positive vibes and while listening to good music!

Earlier in my professional journey, I've been working as shoes designer for big companies; at that time I had the chance to learn so much about shoe making processes but I also felt that the massive, impersonal industrial dimension didn't match with my own nature. I felt the need of bringing the concept of "work" to a more human, ethical and sustainable dimension; my wish was to give back to the concept of work its natural noble meaning.

While crossing that big personal change in my life, *ele* has born:
*ele* is not only my nickname it's also my project, my passion which coincides with my job; it’s the mirror of my endless and precious parents education,
it’s especially a dream that is fading into reality.

Now, with my artisanal project, I can enjoy curating the creative step as well as the executive one.
Taking care of every step is continuously helping me grow professionally and thanks to the direct contact with all my lovely customers I also grow personally.
I really loved getting back into the whole process, it’s almost like an artistic project, from the beginning to the end, the idea first blossoms in my mind and then magically comes out thru my hands, I feel so proud when a new pair is ready but it isn't just about creating, there's much more to come!
I feel that the most powerful and gratifying side of my work is when I receive the signs of my customers happiness, when I receive few words of appreciation or any other love demonstration, I feel that my message arrived, all the energies I used to craft my accessories have found a sense, they make somebody smile, the circle is complete!

I feel so lucky to have the chance to live this experience, my job is my daily source of fresh happiness, self esteem, fulfillment, it's one of the reasons why I can't wait to wake up every morning with a huge smile on my face,

thanks to all the people who believed and will believe in my dreams!

I also run another Etsy shop filled with Vintage picks from Spain and Italy, come and visit!

★ Shoe sizing ★
In order to pick the right size, please, measure your foot: sit down on a chair and place your foot on top of a rule on the floor, measure the foot from the very back of the heel to the longest toe and compare the measurement with the following size chart:

if your foot length is ****** suggested size is

8.3" - 21,2 cm-------------------------34
8.6" - 21,9 cm-------------------------35
8.7" - 22,2 cm------------------------- 36
9" - 23 cm-------------------------------37
9.3" - 23,7 cm--------------------------38
9.5" - 24,3 cm--------------------------39
9.8" - 25 cm----------------------------40
10.1" -25,8 cm--------------------------41
10.4" - 26,4 cm------------------------42
10.6" - 27 cm---------------------------43
10.9" - 27,8 cm-------------------------44
11.1" - 28,4 cm--------------------------45

Please, consider that my shoes fit small, however, as the leathers I use are very soft, they tend to naturally stretch and after few uses they normally fit like a glove!

Please note that generic conversion charts are quite approximate and may not correspond with my sizes/fitting.

Bigger or smaller sizes are available upon request: please, contact me if you have a special size request.

If you fancy another color or material, just let me know: I love custom orders and I will be happy to sew a pair for you!

Please consider that the settings of each monitors are different, it means that colors may differ very slightly from the picture you see on your screen.

I respect your privacy and do not sell or distribute any customer information under any circumstances, this includes my mailing list as well as any email info or personal info you provide.

All of the accessories are based on Ele´s designs and not to be re-distributed, copied, imitated, or misappropriated in any way.

Please, note, I do not use reptile leather in any case for my accessories: all the material, both textiles and leather, are imitating reptile textures through prints or embossing.
