CRAFTED BY HAND, INSPIRED BY THE LAND.

Artistry and craftsmanship are the hallmarks of our beautiful hand-burnished collection of boots made in our Adelaide workshop. This season’s colours were inspired by the natural beauty of the Australian landscape; our own backyard. From the rich red of a Waratah in bloom, to the iconic colour of a forest of blue gums.

Boots as unique as you

Burnishing is an artisanal process that is designed to bring out the richness and true characteristics of leather, the depth of colour and the unique highs and lows. Our burnishing technique is an Italian inspired artisanal method, with Australian craftsmanship bringing out the richness and true characteristics of leather. This process produces a truly unique product, with no two pairs of boots being the same.

CHARACTER HANDCRAFTED

First the boot upper is cut from unfinished hide; Italian dye is then applied by hand. This is followed by hours of polishing and buffing, with particular attention paid to the toe and heel. Colours are worked and re-worked to create a mesmerising tonal transition, and each one-piece-of-leather boot travels through 90 pairs of hands as it’s made. The process creates a beautiful richness and unique highs and lows on a boot.

 

TIMELESS BEAUTY

The timeworn beauty of our archival saddlery and the subtle richness that leather develops during years of use was also a source of inspiration for our craftsmen and women.

Caring for your burnished boots

For general care, lightly wipe your boots with a clean cloth. For further maintenance, burnished boots should be lightly polished using the Stockman's Boot Polish only. Leather conditioner will alter the appearance of the boots due to the aniline finish of the leather.
