2 rue Melingue
The company handles every step in the manufacture and repair of shoes and leather items. For example with resoling: stripping and scraping the sole, pasting, deburring the edges by trimming, fine scouring and brushing. The workshop can remove a sole, resole it identically or adapt/modify a sole as per the customer’s wishes.
It is a cut above the rest in the industry thanks to its ability to perform complex resoling operations (Goodyear, Blake, Norvégien), engravings (decoration) on leather, repairs to extremely damaged soles and/or ones that need to be especially hard-wearing (performance), and exact restorations for museum pieces. Cattelan can also resize boots (make the boots smaller or larger or reduce the shaft).
Customers include individuals and companies (Paraboot, Heschung, John Lobb, Loewe, Hermès, and thirty independent wholesalers), producers in the performing arts (theatre, film companies), designers and museums. Orders are split between the Ile-de-France region and commissions from outside Paris in France and worldwide (Sergio Rossi, Giuseppe Zanotti, Fratelli Rossetti, Crockett & Jones, Paul Smith, Givenchy, Sartore, Michel Vivien).
