"Our espadrilles are made at “the source” in the Spanish town of Caravaca de la Cruz. Why is this so important? Our best-in-class factory uses a consortium of women to execute the special whipstitch that attaches the upper to the jute sole. These 200 women are able to do the work from their homes, on their own time, allowing them to earn income but with great flexibility. If you ever get a chance to watch the process of an expert espadrille stitcher in action it is mesmerizing. Their strength, precision and concentration is astounding. These shoes are so special and you will feel a unique difference with this new collection."
