Meet the Makers
Giovanni Del Prete worked in the shoe industry for nearly 40 years. As a boy he worked as a labourer in a small workshop, learning the art of the craft. At 20 years of age he decided to establish his company and still manages it with love and dedication and passed this on to his children.
Clutch Ballerina is a young label created by the Del Prete family. Based in Grumo Nevano in Naples, the Del Prete's have been producing shoes for over 20 years.
The whole family is involved in the business, with one daughter managing the business, two other daughters leading the style and designs of the shoes and the son mainly involved in the business administration. To read about our other makers, view here.
