The Friulane babouches or "scarpets" have ancient origins linked to the feminine (not only) habit of recycling materials.
These shoes were party's shoes, also worn by brides.

Around the 18th century, the gondoliers of the Serenissima (Venice) used to wear them in the everyday’s life, due to the characteristic rubber sole, obtained from bicycle tires, preserving the paint of the precious gondolas.

The charm of the Friulane lies in the handmade workmanship, characterized by visible seams and the presence of concentric nods: the slowness of the manufacture attests them to the high degree of craftsmanship.

We NAVIGANTI e SOGNATORI consider the Friulane as little artwork to be worn on many occasions: both as sophisticated babouches for relaxing moments, but also with jeans and dresses for a casual chic look.

In our entirely “made-in-Italy” gallery, we opted for the baby-model in velvet, since their elasticity is more structured than the classic Papussa and further because we consider this laced shoe exquisitely feminine.

Also, in the package you will find a set of custom brooches with funny phrases and the logo of NAVIGANTI e SOGNATORI, to be applied to the babouches, and made exclusively for NAVIGANTI e SOGNATORI by Friuli craftsmen.

The Friulane might be also a delightful gift for Christmas, or a birthday gift for those who are passionate about craftsmanship.
