Our Huarache Loafers are made from raw leather and foot-loomed fabric. The leather starts out a honey color but will change to a darker honey color due to the natural oils from your skin! The sun will also help to cure the leather to its final tone. Each strand is hand cut to form the intricate basket weave!  All handcrafted in Antigua Guatemala by skilled artisans who love their craft.

Ah, and the fabric, yes, it's also handwoven, it usually takes one of our weavers six to eight hours to weave one yard of our accent fabric! The colors are vibrant and remind us of warm summer days ahead, this is slow fashion at its best! Good for the Earth. Good for you. Good for Artisans.

100% cotton fabric. Rubber soles. Cellasto High Performance Insoles. Classic. Connected. Natural. Fair Trade. Eco-Cool.

How we make them

A craftsman cuts the leather by hand, choosing the leather carefully and making sure that he follows the grain of the leather, his expert eye tells him the best way to cut each piece. He then sews each piece with accuracy and exactness only seasoned cobblers have mastered. Each upper body is placed then in the shoe form and with skilled and strength, the master cobbler dresses the form and prepares it to attach the leather sole. The soles are then layered, one on top of another, he then cuts and sands the leather to perfection. Once the glue is dry the leather Artisan then carefully builds-up the finish with an expert’s eye, and touch, to achieve an aged patina in just the right places to reflect the aged qualities only time, wear, and frequent care could have accomplished naturally.

Handmade by Artisans

Artisanal products differ from fast fashion products in that they are made in a traditional or non-mechanized way. Artisanal products are hand-crafted by skilled cobblers in small quantities with high quality and design in mind; using techniques that cannot be replicated by machines!
