Also delving into the creative process of shoemaking is The Cloakroom, featuring iconic brand: Stefano Bemer. Constructed using traditional methods the leather is soaked in water for 12 hours, then allowed to dry and rest, before being wrapped in paper and beaten with a hammer on stone. The sewing thread used for the welt and the sole is made on-site using an ancient technique of twisting linen thread with a pitch and pure beeswax. Even the shank which supports the foot arch is made of wood in the traditional manner. In using this process Stefano Bemer creates shoes that are light, comfortable and a true representation of individual style, presenting a fully bespoke experience at The Cloakroom that is perfect for getting something that is intrinsically you, or finding a one-of-a-kind gift.
