"You don't become a shoe maker,
if you don't make a sacrifice
I make shoes,
because of beauty
not because of shoes
The beauty of imperfection
That kind of beautifulness, is the deepest one
In a shoe,
You will find
all the metaphysical character
of everything that exists
And that's an amazing beautiful idea
For me, its about being conscious
of what you have to do in this life
Artisinal work is true
if it is true,
it is just
Nothing scares me more
than being an artist
For me, the most important thing is to create"
