Aldo Castagna Animal Print Suede Heels

Aldo Castagna was founded in 1963 in Italy, home of quality leather and suede, as well as impeccable design of ladies shoes and bags.. The brand began as a small and simple workshop producing elegant footwear, now, almost 50 years later, the Aldo Castagna brand has an international clientele and a reputation for excellence in its field.
During the 90s, the second generation of Aldo Castagana's family took of the business. They made the decision to concentrate on producing high quality footwear and accessories for women. This allowed the already highly respected brand to increase its sales and heighten its reputation in the highly competitive Italian market. This change was hugely successful, and the Aldo Castagna name is now outdoing everyone's expectations, and making a name for itself in international markets.
Aldo Castagna shoes and bags are still hand made in Italy, using the finest materials available. Their pieces are usually made of suede or leather, and are famed for their attention to even the most minute details. The designs often incorporate chain, rosette, and lace-up detailing; the rosettes in particular are incredible. As opposed to going the usual route of using a flower print or placing a false rose onto the pieces, their designers created a flower from spiralling the suede material of the piece into a rose, to beautiful effect.
Aldo Castagna is a brand dedicated to its heritage and craft, something that shows in every last one of its impeccably detailed, sophisticated shoes and bags.
