Novesta's was created in the 1930s, when the famous shoemaker Jan Antonin Bata opened a new factory in the small town of Partizánske in the middle of Slovakia. Novesta is dedicated to manufacturing shoes according to the highest environmental standards. They use materials such as natural rubber and 100% cotton and linen. These materials allow them to produce ecological footwear of the highest quality. The natural rubber sole is machine-pressed onto the body of the shoe. The shoe is then finished by precise manual work completed by skilled craftsmen.
