Since Spring 2014
Hello, I am Ana Buigues Durá and I love espadrilles, wearing, designing, making, altering them ... and selling them.
I am based in Valencia, Spain.
In my store you will find:
.supplies to make espadrilles
.espadrilles of my own design that I either make myself or have them made for me in local low key workshops in Spain.
.espadrilles I do not make myself and that I alter and use as a base for my own designs.
.espadrilles I do not make myself but that I happen to like and want to offer to the public – either to be altered by the client or worn as they come directly from the manufacturer or the artisan.
You can also visit my Etsy shop.
