Fanga, a brand recalling an ancient story, going back to the origins of a centenary word from Bologna’s dialect, meaning Shoe: an almost forgotten etymology which is now being reintroduced by two young entrepreneurs, Lorenzo Fusina and Bruno Riffeser Monti, who have established the brand.
Looking at the future through tradition, using our roots to develop a luxury that goes beyond aesthetic and rejoices the soul. The true Made in Italy, handmade to enhance its uniqueness.
For a luxury beyond simple appearances and acclaimed brands; a luxury exploring the history of Artisan Customs, of the masters who carve and stitch leather slowly but steadily, with the wise knowledge of those who still work with their hands to create masterpieces.
A secret and rare experience, driven by the desire and wait for the finished product, realized by the keepers of these almost forgotten techniques. Footwear embellished by the customized details, made of precious metals, chosen according to one’s own passions and personality: a small symbol, initials, a lucky charm, a secret message coded to only be recognized by a group of friends.
Fanga shoes are produced entirely in Italy: they’re the product of fine artisan work, respectful of the traditional practice, process, and rhythm. Every shoe is handmade, using the Goodyear technique, a method that grants comfort and resistance to a truly exclusive product.
The design study, the accurate shape choice, the model development, the attentive selection of colors and materials, the finishing touches, are all essential stages in the production of every shoe. A creative process resulting in a perfect and complete product, thanks to the best handcrafting techniques.
The finished products are charming and unique: the result of a long attentive research, and of a short and controlled production chain. These are all necessary conditions, in order to offer a product of the highest possible quality.
The handcrafted process, without the use of any machinery, brings the individual back to the center of the productive process, making every shoe unique and giving it an added value.
From shape carving to model design; from leather cutting to stitching; from shaping the sole to the finishing touches: every Fanga shoe is the result of attentive eyes, and comes to life thanks to slow meticulous handcrafting. Products of the highest quality, to which our master artisans dedicate weeks of their time, their capable touch and rare sensibility, in order to create masterpieces of beauty and preciousness.
