Our Dip-Dyeing Process

More Extraordinary With Every Step

The meticulous dip-dyeing process is unique to the Toscana brand. In four days, we give raw materials a rich, beautiful color and a vintage look that’s full of personality. 

A Vintage Touch

Our Italian shoe masters have refined our dip-dyeing process into a journey of more than 200 careful steps. First we stitch the upper of the shoe before hand-dipping the raw materials into an eco-friendly, vegetable-based dye that provides a deep, luxurious color without any harsh chemicals.

The shoes are left soaking in the dye for an entire day before they’re hung up to get rid of excess product that drips off. From there, they continue on their epic saga, shepherded along by expert Italian craftsmen at every stage, before arriving ready-to-wear with distressed style that speaks volumes without saying a word.
