The Barbera family’s story started in 1968, when Sandro Barbera and his wife opened their bottega in Biella‘s historical centre. Thanks to his outstanding creativity and dedication, Barbera became the most valued shoemaker in town, until he passed his passion on to his sons, Andrea and Stefano, who are now running the business with their wives.
The advent of the Internet led them to develop both their production and their communication skills. Today, Barbera Biella’s bespoke shoes are being sold online throughout Italy. The exclusive top quality of their entirely handmade products, their choice of the best materials and a unique style are offered at the right price.
On entering their atelier, clients can actually feel the expertise, passion and enjoyment they are breathing into their daily work.
In April 2018 Sandro Barbera & Sons won the 1st edition of the contest Artigiano del Cuore. Their interview on Wellmade is available in Italian.
