Norman Vilalta is a bespoke shoemaker based in
Barcelona, Spain. 


For Norman, a whole cosmos of meaning can be seen through the keyhole of his craft. 

In spending time with him we came to see that the smallest details of his work take on the grandest of poetic importances.


Norman revealed to us the real cost of this work, the sacrifice of the shoemaker, and inspired us to pay closer attention to the beauty in our everyday experiences.
