Isabel and Emanuel are a couple in love with travel. Once tourists, today they become true travelers. When traveling, they like to get to know and understand the local communities – their way of life, customs and traditions, symbols and costumes. Over the years, these experiences have become more enriching. And then they were allowed to collect products and ideas from the places where they passed.
On one of the trips to Kenya, they visited several communities where sandals are produced artisanal. Above all, with the colors and patterns characteristic of local cultures. Curiosity over manufactured goods turned out to be a passion.
They kicked off with leather sandals and beads, hand-crafted with Massais design and techniques. As well as other products typically coming from East Africa, such as the Kikois. These African fabrics are vibrant and full of color, transporting us immediately to the customs and customs of this region.
It followed India, where they also found the manufacture of sandals, but with a more sophisticated design. They identified the production of clutches and pouches, fully lined with beads, also carried out by local artisans.
