About this event

We will meet virtually at our workshop in Barcelona, in a very unique and special place, where you will feel immersed and surrounded by espadrilles.

First, we will introduce you to the story of these beautiful shoes and the materials needed for their construction. You will learn about this old tradition, and how this shoe passed from being built by and for humble people, to be one of the most trendy styles of shoes nowadays.

Then, every guest will choose the size of the base, the color and materials, and the style of stitching. Once ready, we will stitch LIVE your own traditional espadrilles, following your instructions. Once finished, we will teach you the different ways to lace them up and use them.

Finally, and very important, we will ship your creation to your home with free worldwide FedEx shipping. Your will get the pair at your home, all included, no extra cost!

My name is Luis and along with my wife Kathe we are founders and artisans of HANDMADE BARCELONA®, an ethical brand of handmade traditional shoes from Cataluña, Spain. We have been making shoes for many years in our family-owned factories in Spain. We are the creators of a successful experience (both on-site and online) teaching people how to stitch traditional Catalan espadrilles. We are not only experts when it comes to espadrilles, but we're also fun and entertaining with our anecdotes and stories.
