A traditional performance fabric, Burel melton is a 100% wool fabric made in the mountains of Portugal that was originally worn by Portuguese shepherds. Burel is woven and then felted, which gives is unique strength and water resistance. We have sourced this heritage fabric in a range of contemporary colours and made a range of shoes with the Slovakian shoe company, Novesta.
The traditional Novesta uppers have been reworked slightly to suit this durable, functional fabric that works well as an alternative to suede, and looks brilliant fused to that classic Novesta chunky sole unit.
