Legend says that Emperor Tiberius, whochose the isle of Capri as his home, used to wear sandals with a rigidsole and long straps interlaced around his ankles. Soon, all of Capriresidents could be seen wearing variations of these sandals, withrichly colored straps dyed in Capri's colors of blue, green and yellow.

The ancient art of making these sandalsis still alive and thriving in Capri. Small workshops, filled with worntools, multicolored straps and hand crafted leather soles are tucked incharming corners with cobblers showcasing a multitude of styles andtelling clients, "Just choose your style and your sandals will be readyon the way back from your stroll."

One of Capri's foremost families ofshoemaking are the Faiellas. The last in this long line of artisans isVincenzo Faiella (Enzo as we fondly refer to him). Enzo's stories ofhis ancestors making sandals for this princess or that socialite are asrich as a well-woven tapestry, and it is from this maestro that thecobblers of Tuccia have learned their craft. Tuccia is dedicatedto representing Capri's beautiful art of the custom sandal to thehighest standard.

And as our maestro Enzo would say"¦""¦is good. Bellissimo!"
