French Shoemaker since 1934



Genova is a mineral-tanned leather. Its natural translucency and suppleness make it ideal for designs like the Agathe ankle boot or the Manhattan monk-strap Oxford from our women’s collections, giving them their stylish grained finish.


Genova leather is worked in the Santa Croce village of Tuscany using Italian hides.


Clean with a dry or very slightly damp cloth. Ideally, use the HESCHUNG cream next as its excellent pigmenting power will revitalize your leather. Apply sparingly, leave for a while and then buff with a wool cloth to restore the full shine of the leather.

Like any fine or delicate material, the grain of this leather is vulnerable to scratches and requires special care.

Being sensitive to water, it is important to waterproof your shoes regularly and take care not to use any overly abrasive resins or solvent-based products.

All the necessary shoe care and cleaning accessories are available from our e-shop and Heschung boutiques.
