Like many women, it was challenging to find stylish shoes that fit me well - without

compromising on comfort. In 2013, I enrolled in an artisanal shoemaking

workshop in Barcelona, where I designed and handcrafted my first pair of leather

shoes. From idea to fruition, I felt blissfully alive throughout the entire process.

This ignited passion, coupled with my familial and cultural ties, lead to the vision of

creating my own footwear label.

my culture

The world's oldest leather shoe was recently discovered in Armenia's Areni-1 cave. They date back to the Copper Age, about 3500b.c., and were remarkably preserved for millennia. It is clear that craftsmanship was a priority to my ancestors, as it was made from a single piece of cowhide and laced together by a leather cord to fit the owner perfectly.
