The Story Behind Our Sandal Collection
People have been asking us to add sandals to our collection for years. It makes sense – a straw bag and a simple sandal is the quintessential summer uniform. However we’ve always resisted. We’ve always believed in making the highest quality, timeless pieces and have never been able to find a sandal that lived up to our high expectations.
We knew that in order to make the best sandal we had to find skilled craftsmen that had been practicing this art through the generations. Naturally, we cast our eyes towards Greece where sandals have been worn since 1600 BC. From farmers to philosophers, Greek leather sandals are a classic staple that remain eternally chic.
Our quest led us to a small workshop in Athens, a stone’s throw from the Acropolis. Each pair is handcrafted by a third generation sandal maker using top grain, vegetable tanned leather which is free from all chemicals.
The result is a sandal that will get softer and more comfortable as you wear it, and that you can reach for year after year.
