Adding a Caroline Groves original to the lexicon of shoe styles, this shoe is full of character in a charming, if naive way. A sort of unconscious pulling together of materials that talk in someway to each other.

Illustrated in a number of ways here with techniques and decorations ranging from Caroline’s favourite wool needlepoint heel covers combine with earthy vegetable tanned leather through to handworked silk embroidery on rare alum-tawed skin which could make the most fabulous wedding shoes.
