ALL ABOUT THE 1301
The 1301 is a contemporary mid-height round tongue, playing homage to the flamboyant masquerade balls of 16th Century Venice. Paired with quilt lining and fabric binding for a sophisticated look. All our patterns are clicked by hand before embarking on their journey around the workshop being handmade into our signature velvet slippers.
