SS20 Artisan Finishes - Old Havana

Inspired by a city weathered by time, this season’s artisan finishes reflect the colorful aesthetic of Old Havana.

BED|STU pieces are known for their craftsmanship, from the use of quality, organic material, to their construction using traditional methods, into a product that stands the test of time. We handcraft each piece in our factory in Leon, in the state of Guanajuato, in Mexico, an area best known for its footwear and leather goods.

Our full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather, and while our finishing methods are all applied the same way, each piece can take to the dye differently, creating one-of-a-kind, unique textures that develop its patina and builds their character as they age.

Beginning this spring, we’ll be releasing an artisan finish based on the theme of the season’s collection, paying homage to the most significant elements of the theme with special color palettes and visual textures.

For SS20, our artisan finishes pay homage to the tropical climate of the country, and the peeling layers of paint on the city’s long-standing buildings.

The Blue Havana colorway, applied with strokes that mimic hand-painted brush strokes, mirrors the weathered doors with layers of crackling paint found all along Havana’s cobblestone street.

Blue Havana is shown on our fan-favorite sandal, SOTO, and beloved platform bootie, LYDYI.
