Stefano B.

Back in October, before we visited Lineapelle, we were able to make a quick stopover in Florence.  We walked.  A lot. For at least part of the day, we actually knew where we were going, and that was to visit the shops owned and operated by Stefano Bemer.

I first met Stefano before I joined the business.  My visit to his store many years ago was my introduction to custom shoe-making.  Even as a kid it was clear that this kind of business is different from others.  The cozy-but-almost-claustrophobic atmosphere of the shop, with the workroom in the back (of course), says it all.
