About the Maker

Anne Marika Verploegh Chassé

... is a shoemaker, artist and educator from Switzerland and the Netherlands.

In her Brooklyn atelier STIEFELwerk – meaning "bootwork" – she designs and builds 

made to measure footwear for individual clients, employing traditional techniques and skills.

Background

Fascinated by the physicality of the making process, and the challenge of combining design, math, ergonomics and artistry, AMVC has worked with skilled master-craftsmen all over the world to learn the craft.


Her fine arts background bleeds into her designs. Bold lines, curves, hand-stitched details, multicolor rows of threads, and leather surfaces marked by

nature, exemplify her work.


Collaboration with other artists and designers is a source of inspiration.

In addition to her atelier work she teaches footwear design and construction at Rhode Island School of Design and Fashion Institute of Technology.
