RALEIGH DENIM WORKSHOP FOR ALLEN EDMONDS
Art Meets Craft
Black selvedge denim woven in Louisiana on looms from the famous White Oak plant is his blank canvas. Artist and Designer Victor Lytvinenko hand paints each piece, envisioning the shoe it will become. It’s then given to our artisans in Port Washington for precision cutting, sewing and assembling into our Strand oxford on the same machines that have made thousands of shoes in the hands of those makers.
Individual Masterworks in the Making
The meaning of what we wear is as important as the piece itself. We build classics designed to make you feel different, more up for adventure, ready to grow. Pieces of the canvas used to create your individual shoes are included with your pair of one of 22 Strand oxfords. An individual masterwork that’s uniquely yours.
Handcrafted by us
Every piece of the shoe is selected by Victor and then given to our experts in Port Washington, Wisconsin to be built into our iconic Strand oxford by 48 pairs of hands over 212 steps.
HANDPAINTED SELVEDGE DENIM
Made with individually numbered canvases from Artist and Designer, Victor Lytvinenko, each pair is a one-of-one piece of art that’s completely unique to you.
“Each of us a blank canvas. Our lives, bones and style shape and mold the fabric, the leathers and build up wear marks. After years—like us—every pair will look different and have unique stories to tell. ”
— Victor Lytvinenko
