Carbatinae - Your feet will thank you 

The Carbatina (plural: Carbatinae) is the latin term of a type of shoes called peasant’s boots, which consists of one piece of leather. Carbartinae were very common in the Roman Empire and a type of shoes, wich were widespread until the fist millenniums AD. 

The Carbartinae normally consist of a piece of cowhide, that forms the sole and top at the same time. Carbatinae mostly don’t show sewed parts like outsoles. 

  • organic leather, vegetable tanning, without chemistry
  • high wearing comfort
  • fabricated with handicraft

Especially important to us with our leather is, that it is tanned without chemical substances ans no toxics like chrome can penetrate through the leather to the skin. Therefore the leather comes from a traditional german tannery with a long family tradition.   Children and grown ups consequently can wear the Carbartinae without doubts barefooted. 

Archaeological discoveries of maintained Carbartinae show, that those were long worn. The Carbartinae because of their way of fabrication were ascribed to people with average income as well as by children, women and of course tradesmen.
