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.
A new Novesta style based on an old low cut, simple shoe we found in the Novesta archives on a recent visit to their factory in Partizánske.
