It’s easy to lose track of the fact that at one time in history, every pair of shoes and each leather satchel on earth was hand-constructed by an artisan cobbler or leatherworker. Some still are, and many of the most beautiful ones are at A Mano. The shop’s name translates to “by hand” in Italian and Spanish; not all shoes and bags are made in the old-world way, but tall, architectural boots by Cydwoq and unisex, one-of-a-kind shoulder bags by Lebanon’s Johnny Farah are, and it shows—in the most beautiful way.
