Join us in this fun Alpargatas Handcraft Workshop in Barcelona, an experience with the purpose of discovering the espadrille, a way of creating fashion in a more conscious and sustainable way with the planet. The workshop will be in an accessible space, in the center of the city near La Rambla.
The history of espadrilles dates back to ancient Egypt, although it was in Spain where women’s and men’s espadrilles would achieve greater fame. So much so that they became the footwear of armies, peasants and nobles, since esparto espadrilles have very varied uses. A shoe that, today, we are still using. Espadrilles take their name from the Catalan word, espardenya, used to describe the canvas shoes with rolled rope soles and vertical seams worn by 14th-century peasants in the Spanish Pyrenees.
La Manual Alpargatera was founded in 1941 in the heart of Barcelona, in the iconic Gothic Quarter where we will get lost in its labyrinthine streets from medieval times and discover endless hidden squares, traditional shops and charming bars. Each corner will tell you a historical story and this store is no exception. During this Workshop you will be able to see first hand how the masters make this traditional footwear. Then, you can customize your own espadrilles. Choose a flat or heeled sole, select your favorite basic color (among ten available) and combine it with the ribbons in the tone that you like best. There is a wide variety!
Do not miss this Espadrilles Handcraft Workshop in Barcelona, enjoy the experience and your favorite espadrilles!
