Our Brand


La Manual Alpargatera is an espadrille workshop that began as a project of a Catalan couple: Emilia Martinez, a daring entrepreneur, in 1940 changed the concept of espadrilles, with the creation of the first fashionable espadrilles in history.

La Manual Alpargatera is tradition and artisan style. Timeless, feminine design. Sustainable footwear, natural materials. Handmade in Barcelona.

La Manual Alpargatera since 1940


Our brand continues working with the same artisan techniques, innovating to offer fashionable models with the quality for which we are recognized, the comfort, and the tradition that characterizes us.
