Papucei is a word you would use when you care for a pair of shoes dearly and you can’t just name them “shoes”. Also, it’s a regional word, used mostly in the north-east of Romania, a region known for its long tradition in shoe manufacturing and the place where Papucei was established.
A lifetime dedicated to manufacturing and inimitable design. Angela Vasiliu graduated from the Technical Faculty of Textile and Leather Goods, the only Romanian faculty in the field, right in her hometown, Iasi. She spent a few years working in two state factories as an engineer and designer, but after the Revolution, she slowly started laying the foundation of her own company. It took will and skill, but soon she managed to get the mechanism working. All her designs were one of a kind, different both in shape, colour combinations and leathers used. Her creative ideas continue to amaze us in Papucei’s current collections which are full of them.
