Founded in 1990 with its distinctive style, sculptural and experimental lines, the "fuselage" of the Corthay shoe borrows from the worlds of the automobile and aeronautics. In a single skiving-knife stroke, it crafts the lines of a racy shoe - contemporary, timeless and desirable.

This 360° journey will begin with the introduction of the Maison followed by a demonstration of the tools and skins used & provided by the workshop for the occasion.


Attendees will then be offered the possibility to create their own patina on leather Coasters, which they can then take back home. As a little souvenir of the event, Corthay will be organizing the hot stamping of initials / names / words of your choice on the coaster you have crafted.
