As part of a new series entitled “Made In Italy,” A Continuous Lean gives us this behind-the-scenes look at the production of Gucci’s iconic loafer. Manufactured in a facility on the outskirts of Florence, each hand-sewn loafer passes through the delicate hands of a team of highly-skilled artisans who are involved in perfecting each and every shoe. After being sewn together and lasted, the shoes are then hand-stained and welted before going through a finishing process that includes polishing, drying, and the addition of the signature horsebit.
