BUREL – First element of our footwear
The burel is a portuguese 100% sheep wool fabric, with characteristics very favorable to its use. It is quite sturdy, comfortable and water repellent.
This fabric goes along the story of the shepherd of Serra da Estrela wearing burel jackets and coats, to protect himself from the cold, the snow and the rain, while guarding his flock on the mountain.
Each pair of REALIS shoes brings some of this traditional story with a touch of elegance and creativity.
