CONTINUING A CENTURIES-OLD TRADITION

"All of my work is meticulously handcrafted using traditional methods and the finest of materials. The end result is a beautiful, stylish product that will never go out of fashion - designed for comfort and built to last."

Mariano first began learning the art of shoemaking as a teenager in Spain with his father, who worked as a cobbler. As a young adult, Mariano spent many years travelling and exploring the world, until deciding to return to his roots and focus on developing his skills as a bespoke shoemaker. 

After training with a Spanish master in the art of making traditional Spanish hunting boots, Mariano went on to secure an apprenticeship with the world renowned bootmaker, John Lobb in London's West End. During his time there, Mariano provided his services to a wide range of clients, including members of the royal family, famous actors, artists and celebrities.

Having completed his training, Mariano now continues the centuries-old tradition of creating exquisitely handcrafted bespoke shoes and boots from his London based workshop.

Mariano has received a number of awards, including: the Cockpit Arts/Greater London Area of NADFAS Award (2016-17) in recognition of his dedication to preserving an ancient craft; and the Cockpit Arts/Leathersellers' Award (2017-18, 2018-19 & 2019-20) in recognition of his skills in leatherwork.
