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 family

Generations of my family have been immersed in the fashion industry. In the 20s and 30s, my maternal grandfather was a bespoke tailor in Beirut, Lebanon, while my paternal grandmother worked in DTLA's garment district as a sewing machine operator. Throughout the rest of the 20th century to the present day, their professions encompass buying and managing fine clothing stores, fashion modeling, and personal and wardrobe styling.
