German-born Stefanie Schöninger - of Atelier Stefani - is an artisan shoemaker who creates pieces of art that last a lifetime. These are products for individualists, innovators, thinkers, makers and those who are too gentle to live among wolves.
With each shoe taking 40-90 hours to create, she imbues her emotions and energy into every stitch, infusing them with the passion of a true artist.
It’s a time-consuming process, but one that Stefanie pours her heart and soul into. By transforming ancient traditions into modern craftsmanship, she hopes to create a new appreciation for products that are made well and with care.
