DIEGOS® - Jute espardenya espadrilles
- These authentic espadrilles are entirely hand crafted, like the ones back in the sixties before the arrival of vulcanization and rubber soles.
- The sole is hand stitched by Vicente, nicknamed ''El borracho ", one of the last alpargateros (espadrille artisans) in northern Spain.
- The soles made of braided jute rope, are shaped and then hand sewn with a punch on a custom designed artisan wood bench .
- Espardenyas represent the art of hand making espadrilles as presented in this picture portraying Paquita crafting a traditional espadrille.
