Espadrilles have long been part of HEREU’s collections.

Their strong historical ties to Spain stretch back centuries, and their name comes from the Catalan word, “espardenya”, which refers to the native esparto grass used traditionally in the creation of rope and basketry.

HEREU’s decision to reinterpret the classic espadrille into new, refined variations was a natural one. The brand’s keen interest in folk techniques here takes on a new significance, given that espadrilles have been worn continuously by people in the Mediterranean for generations.

HEREU’s espadrille styles such as Horta and Caprala offer luxurious fabrications in leather, as well as elasticated sections for greater comfort. Manufactured in Alicante by specialist artisans, they join a lineage of espadrilles crafted by hand in the Mediterranean.
