The Fabrics collection is designed for those who love cheerful colours and fun prints to express their personal and unconventional style. All the shoes of the Fabric collection are made with fabric remnants that we collect from textile manufacturers and warehouses.
To create our sneakers and boots, we recover textile remnants and textile warehouse stock, before they are shredded and dumped in landfills.
All the shoes of the Fabrics collection are limited edition, unique like the material we use to produce them.
From the sole to the upper, every single part of the Fabrics collection shoes is designed and created by the expert hands of our artisans. RE49 production is tailor-made and not industrial.
Our shoes are made in Italy and are created bearing in mind our customers’ needs, who want design but also a comfortable walking experience. RE49 shoes are conceived, designed and produced in our atelier in Gonars, in the province of Udine.
THE MATERIALS WE USE IN OUR ATELIER ARE THE CENTER OF OUR VISION OF PROGRESS. THEIR STORIES INSPIRE THE CREATIVITY OF OUR ARTISANS, WHO HEAL THE BROKEN SOUL OF WASTED OBJECTS AND ORCHESTRATE A SYMPHONY OF GESTURES TO CREATE NEW LIFE AND NEW PURPOSES.
The shoes of the Fabrics collections tell a story about creative recycling: for example, with surplus fabric of a dress, we can produce a pair of shoes with the same print. Or, from an old sofa we can produce the most sustainable sneakers in the world, in a circular economy.
Every pair of shoes, through materials, has more than one story to tell. A piece of fabric is accurately selected and used twice: the first time to make dresses, curtains, upholstery and furniture, the second time, our artisans will take what is left of it and create the shoes of our Fabrics collection. The shoes of the RE49 Sail collection adapt perfectly to feet, because their insoles are made of recycled cotton terry towels, recovered from hotels of the Adriatic Riviera.
