Luxury craftsmanship and beautiful footwear is the beating heart of Pīferi, and veganism and social responsibility is our soul.
We believe customers connect with us because they truly fall in love with our products and on discovering their values want to cherish them for years to come. This means we constantly seek better materials to achieve our aims. Improvements in this area are constant. If we find a material that has a great look but isn’t as sustainable as we would like, we are transparent about our choices while we continue to search for better alternatives and improvements.
While Pīferi is London based our shoes are all handmade in Parabiago, a small town outside Milan. There, care and accuracy of design, and respect and dignity to our artisan makers is practiced down to the very last detail. The decorative elements of Pīferi shoes – the detachable Prima Donna ruffled soquette, cheeky red toe tips and twinkling shoe “bracelets” - are also carefully formed by our team with a devotion to purity of line and elegant simplicity.
