Method and Material

Castizo espadrille are made by 100% leather, inside and outside the product.

Castizo revives the classical espadrille by combining design, quality and a new finishing technique: The soles of the sandals are manufactured traditionally, at a specialized workshop by espadrille masters.

Seamstresses then add the appliance to them by manually stitching it to their soles, using 'punto ojal' (a unique sewing method of a long-standing tradition that can only be performed by hand. Up to this very day, no machine has been invented that can reach comparable results).

The seamstresses used to come together at the village hall in order to sew the shoes while gossiping about the whole world, their men and lives.
