Continuing a long tradition of leather manufacturing, this workshop near Porta Terra imports leather and calfskin from Tuscany for its handmade sandals (from €40 a pair). Established after World War II, it offers footwear in jewel-like colors with rubber or leather soles. You can even have a pair of sandals made to measure and then shipped home. Belts in soft leather or braided calfskin make great and portable gifts.
