Sneak Peek


Join us to make your own bespoke sustainable leather espadrilles. We will show you how to make your own espadrilles from reclaimed leather and environmentally-friendly jute soles. Choose from our slippers, peep-toe sliders, or crossover sandal pattern!

Our experienced makers offer expert instruction and support, and everyone walks out in their own pair of shoes. All materials are provided and no experience necessary.

All our leather is reclaimed from local factory offcuts, and we have a wide range of colours. We use premium jute soles sourced from southern Spain, which are thicker, more robust, and comfier than any other espadrille sole we've seen, so you'll be sure to love wearing your shoes.

A very nice lively workshop and having your hand-made espadrilles with the colours of your choosing is just great.
