Designed by Pia Nowland, Lapito is a new and exciting range of footwear for infants and toddlers worldwide. Carefully handcrafted with high quality leather, lapito ensures the finest finishes and detail in every handmade pair.
Pia Nowland has travelled the world to chase her dream in becoming a shoe designer. In 2012 Pia moved to Italy to complete a shoe design course at Polimoda, an International Institute of Fashion Design based in Florence. Eager to learn more, Pia then graduated in a custom made footwear course at Tafe SA in South Australia. After dedicating long hours in researching and prototyping, Pia saw a gap in the market and developed the brand ‘lapito’ – a niche in trendy footwear for toddlers and infants. The name is a combination of her and her siblings – Lara, Pia and Toby; a meaning very close to her heart. We hope you love them as much as we do!
