Shoes Made by Hand
In 1933, Moore & Giles built the foundation for our leather business by providing leather and materials to the domestic footwear industry. So, for the launch of our 48 color collection of Papillon we decided to return to our roots. We asked Capps Shoe (usmadeshoes.com), one of the few remaining footwear manufacturers in the US to make 48 pairs of shoes for us to highlight in our spring advertising campaign. And they did…by hand! This film highlights the making of those custom shoes. Look for our ads in upcoming issues of Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Interior Design and Veranda magazines.
The Brompton Leather Story
Over a decade ago we created a leather that would forever change the face of Moore & Giles. A leather that becomes an instant classic. A leather that gets better with age. Brompton was that leather. Brompton can be seen around the world – in the finest hotels and your favorite coffee shop – on fine leather sofas, luxurious weekend bags or even a great pair of shoes. Brompton has become the standard for classic natural leathers.
How Leather is Made

Leather tanning is one of the world’s oldest sustainable practices of converting cleaned, perishable raw hides into leather to preserve their natural beauty and inherent characteristics. Filmed in Bassano Del Grappa, Italy.
