EMMA HOPE


Emma grew up in Singapore and England. 

Inspired by her teacher, Bob White, to do Art at A level, and encouraged by her writer mother Daphne Boutwood, who had been a fashion journalist, Emma went on to study shoe design and manufacture, and is a graduate of the Cordwainers College in London. 

All the shoes and bags are made in small, family owned factories in Tuscany, where they are specialists in the finest hand crafted shoe making techniques.

Buying beautiful vintage embroidery at jumble sales and flea markets, Emma loves re-working and reviving the old techniques of how they were originally made onto new shoes and bags.
