Vibi Venezia is the authentic friulane shoes brand co-founded by the Arrivabene sisters.
Born and raised in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy, Viola and Vera Arrivabene put their own twist on the Friulane slippers, a symbol of Venetian tradition. The Furlane slippers, characterized by a thick rubber sole (usually made from old bicycle tires) were traditionally worn by gondoliers, so as not to ruin the paint of their expensive gondolas. Fascinated by the slippers and their history, the two sisters decided to channel their love and passion for Venice into their work by creating something that would capture the magic and charme of the City.
Every slipper is handcrafted by Italian artisans with life-long experience, using a wide variety of hand-picked and premium quality textiles, such as precious velvets and satin.
ViBi Venezia’s Friulane shoes and loafers are perfect both for your free time and more refined and elegant occasions.
