TEN & Co.

you’ll remember the beautiful lookbook from shoemakers TEN & Co. that i shared last year. well, they have gone in a completely different direction to showcase their Spring 2013 collection! showing off their beautiful handmade shoes in sumptuous table settings of food & drink, reminiscent of the still life paintings from Dutch golden age artists like Pieter ClaeszWillem van Aelst, Jan Davidsz. de Heem and Willem Claeszoon Heda (to mention a few). be sure to check out the entire lookbook and read about the story behind these rad shoes.

TEN & Co.

thanks to Zinzi and Lizzie for introducing me to TEN & Co. – a shoe label that specialises in oxfords that are handmade from vintage Moroccan rugs & supple leather. designer Tory Noll was on a trip to Morocco when she stumbled upon a tiny shoe shop in Marrakech and on a whim had some simple oxfords made from scraps of carpet – and so TEN & Co. was born.

Every pair of TEN & Co. shoes is cut from unique vintage and antique hand-woven Moroccan rugs and supple leathers.  We scour rug auctions, souks, Marrakech flea markets and the Atlas mountains to find strong, colorful rugs and blankets that tell a story in each shoe.   Handmade in small batches by a cobbler in Marrakech, our shoes combine a classic Oxford with the vibrant colors and patterns of North Africa.

the beautiful lookbook was shot by Adam Hribar, art directed by Priya Sanghvi & Dan Goldstein, and styled by Leila Thurtell and Eva McCausland.
