For their autumn / winter 2019 collection,  Australian brand St Agni unveiled new styles in a world-first leathercraft technique to knit their footwear, an exclusive process.This technique took over 18 months to develop, experimenting with the label’s skilled artisans from Indonesia and generating a woven style reminiscent of the original pieces that put St. Agni on the map. Each knitted style is shaped by heritage-trained artisans using a manually operated loom, and then stacked, shaped and sanded by hand, and finished with a leather heel. A video of the production process below shows the highly skilled labor in every intricate step from sketching, cutting the leather, knitting by hand and needle, emblazoning the sole, fitting the fabric and a final examination for quality. Every detail is considered. Check out the making of The Mae knit loafer in a short video.
