Our story

The hands that make your shoes - The soul of our business.

 Crafted in Spain, the esparto rope soles are made in Spain and imported to South Africa. Every pair of our espadrilles is handmade in our studio in the heart of Cape Town, exactly the same way espadrilles were made hundreds of years ago. We are proud to preserve this art; fulfilling our vision to fuse cultures and evolve this beloved classic.


The Founders

Patricia and Rizqah came together through their work in luxury brands before striking a friendship that cemented their future as a team. Their collaboration is a coming together of their cultures; a love affair between Spain and Africa.
