Coming from our dance know how, the 'stitch and return' is a unique process of fabrication developed by Rose Repetto. In 1947, she created her first ballet shoes according to this technique, used today to make our shoes. The sole is stitched inside out and returned, offering incomparable suppleness and comfort. Our ballet shoes and ballerinas are made in our workshops in Saint Medard d'Excideuil by our craftsmen in the tradition of our "know how".
“Repetto’s Know How”
Respecting our traditions, we have adapted our "Maison know how" to the requirements of the 21st century. Our craftsmen select the most qualitative pieces of leather and use them to create shoes and leather goods, famous all over the world.
The Repetto pointe shoe, the iconic product of the "Maison", has always met dancers requirements. Repetto has created the personalised pointe shoe, which is unique in France. Since 2005, a research and development partnership with the "Université Technologique de Compiègne" has allowed us to develop a new pointe shoe that minimises sound and pain.
