Fabi Natural Color Shoes makes its debut: a return to natureThe inspiration comes from the dream of rediscovering the techniques and colours that were key to creating Italy’s great artistic legacy in the past: a beautiful range of chromatic, harmonic, lively and genuine elements that only nature can offer.
Thanks to research onto antique dyeing techniques, Fabi proposes this exclusive collection in a preview at Pitti Uomo, with colours derived from natural plant dyes that are accordingly renewable and sustainable for the environment. The colours are extracted using antique and medieval techniques along with manual processes, and are then applied through hand dabbing with a piece of cotton. The mini collection includes the iconic models of the Fabi maison featuring patented Flex Goodyear 102 construction techniques, but also sneakers compacted in their volumes and with distinctive cuts. The natural colours are proposed in blue, red, grey, beige, and forest green tones.
