THONG SANDALS
The Thong Sandals by Portaille are unique, from construction to leather. The McKay process was used for the construction of the sandals and it involves the usage of a specialized sewing machine that sews through the upper, insole, and sole simultaneously, creating a seam that is then trimmed and finished. This creates a lightweight and flexible sandal, yet durable enough to withstand everyday wear and tear.

The cow leather used on the sandals is called Vachetta and it is the shoulder part and has distinctive streaks that lend each piece a unique character. The leather is produced in Italy by the esteemed Conceria 800 tannery, which is famous for using the traditional Vachetta method.

    Leather Tanning

    To achieve its remarkable tightness and high quality, the leather is tanned using the pit-tanning method. A rare and time-honored technique in Italy, which is an environmentally friendly method of leather tanning.

    It involves immersing hides in a pit with tanning agents for several months, which produces leather that is strong, durable, and has a unique color and texture. While many tanneries have switched to more modern and efficient methods, some, like the Conceria 800 in Italy, continue to use the pit-tanning method to produce high-quality leather.
