For this season, sandals or open sandals should be platform, wedge or high heels. Wedge espadrilles are as comfortable as possible for walking, since all materials are completely natural: natural jute sole, cotton, linen or leather upper.
Espadrilles are summer shoes with flat or high heels. They originate in the Pyrenees (Spain). They usually have a canvas or cotton upper and a flexible rope outsole or a rubber outsole made for a rope. The term "Espadrilles" has French roots and comes from the Catalan "espardenya". At least until the 14th century, espadrilles were made in Catalonia.
• Traditional espadrilles have a canvas upper where the forefoot, including the toe, is cut and sewn to the side of the rope sole. Very often they are tied with laces to keep the shoes stable. Espadrilles are worn by both women and men. The sole of espadrilles can be either flat, or in the form of a platform or wedge, and can be made of both natural and artificial rope.
• Currently, the soles of espadrilles are made mainly of jute or rope, which is more preferable from an environmental point of view. The natural bright white color of jute is the main design feature of modern espadrilles. The jute sole also incorporates vulcanized rubber underneath a layer of jute, which allows the shoe to be worn for a long time.
• The production of espadrilles consists of both machine and manual labor. But the most traditional method of production is, of course, manual - sewing the top to the sole of the product.
• This season, TRI'CO CASHMERE presents the Gaimo wedge espadrilles. Gaimo traditionally produces espadrilles as an artisan workshop that handcrafts a natural and organic product. Chic, fashion, femininity - these are the characteristics of the Gaimo espadrilles. All shoes are labeled "Made by hand in Spain">
