fabi-fabi-natural-color-shoes-stringateThanks 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.

It was 1989 when Tom Joule made its first appearance with its own booth at a trade show in Leicestershire, introducing its collection focused on English traditional clothing revamped with a new twist and a more fashionable and alluring touch. Now as it was then, this adventurous spirit tied into nature is the inspiration for the Tom Joule collections of both footwear and clothing: a look designed to face the cold, wind and heavy rain in absolute comfort and with a cheerful disposition.
