Sturdy, durable and waterproof, these handmade boots are traditionally worn by the people of Madeira.
The supple leather and hand stitching protect the ankle and enable the wearer to walk long distances.
As many local traditional artifacts, the manufacture of the “botas de vilão“ has been in decline,
but it has lately been revived and is experiencing a new interest by locals and tourists.
On my webshop you will find my new collection inspired by the “botas de vilão“ and by the traditional garments,
straw hats and basket, characteristic of the beautiful island of Madeira.
