In 1946 Amedeo, shoemaker of great talent, known for his prolific production of colorful sandals, opened the boutique "Canfora".
Over the decades, Amedeo's splendid sandals, made in wonderful soft leather and decorated with exquisite pieces of costume jewelry, have been purchased by customers of international fame such as Princess Margaret, Princess Caroline, Soraya, Maria Callas, Oona Chaplin, Sofia Loren, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Dawn Addams, Anita Ekberg, Naomi Campbell and many others.....
Canfora was a favorite of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, for whom Amedeo never hesitated to open his shop out of normal trading hours so as to guarantee his client a fitting in total privacy. The sandal christened "K" was made exclusively for Mrs Onassis.
Angela and Rita, Amedeo's daughters, have inherited the artistic skills of their father, and continue to make the beautiful handmade leather sandals from the little shop in Capri, updating the designs each year to reflect the changing fashions and as an expression of their innate creative talent.
