Our History

History simply keep moving, in search of the exceptional. Turms was born in 2009, out of the family business Formificio Veregra. Its aim is to produce excellence while preserving a precious cultural heritage: craftsmanship in danger of extinction.

Nature is always the source
of beauty

And that’s why we never stop observing it: the charm of our local woods full of beech, ash and oak; they astonish us with their unique and enchanting strength. That wood transforms itself into shoe trees, boxes, brushes and shoehorns through our daily work. The history takes shape.

We want to create
something great and genuine

We hand down our tradition and history, respecting the nature 

Since ancient times

Essential oils have been considered invaluables. We obtain from them the same vegetal sources and use them for shoe care.

Our Philosophy

In these times, dominated by disposable consumption

Cultivating beauty means reclaiming our time and spreading the value of quality all over the world. It means creating a new culture, made to redescover the never-ending value of manual labour – not just a “click” on a computer, but a human merging of innovation, history and tradition, creating a new concept of beauty that brings in history, quality and excellence.
It means we have to make a unique product.

We must preserve what we care about the most

We have choosen this motto trying to make eternal the values of handmade shoes.  This is our core value: believe in it and let us give you, time after time, our very best.

It is a fascinating journey into our history
