It was far back in 1910 when the family, of which Gimmi Baldinini is the third generation, took its first steps in footwear, making bespoke shoes entirely by hand. Today those craft skills are still as important as ever and are interwoven with creative expertise inspired by world culture. Now, 100 years later and with millions of pairs of shoes under its belt, the company has more than 100 flagship stores around the world in the most exciting fashion locations. Its production unit employs over 250 highly skilled workers. Baldinini brand creations attract attention and are instantly recognised, they are the choice of a huge following of devotees and of the leading world fashion markets.
In the place where he was born, where his grandfather first gave him advice and carved the first forms, thereby establishing the family’s first workshop, Gimmi Baldinini later decided to set up and develop his factory. Now, the fully renovated old building has become an imposing complex with the lightness of modern architecture. In fact the surrounding countryside is reflected in its glass panels. Despite the brand’s current dimensions and the international scope of its mission, its original spirit and creative passion are as strong as ever. For many years this designer has worked with the same craftsmen and skilled workers as they accompany him in the firm’s growth and support its triumphs.
