In 1967 Rolando Sturlini founded the factory of shoes in the heart of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. It was a true family business from the start. Anna, wife of Roland, was in charge of the stitching department, a highly skilled and respected division of the production process. Initially, the company chose to specialize in the manufacture of loafers through a small team of skilled craftsmen. Meanwhile, through the quality and authenticity of the products, the world began to learn about the Sturlini family’s shoes. In the early 70s the company experienced
a great success thanks to the hand-stitched shoe. During the early 80s, Rolando Sturlini was able to embrace new markets by beginning an ambitious partnership with a high-end British fashion brand which, thanks to this Italian collaboration, went on to become a modern and stylish brand. In 1990 Alessio Sturlini, son of Rolando, joined the family and continued, with the same energy and spirit, to create quality footwear. Looking to the future, together with their artisan shoemakers, the goal of the Tuscan company is to grow globally by exporting a brand that stands for the excellence, originality and style of Italian shoes.
