Espadrilles: A summer must-have. They reflect a true artisan look, very much in fashion these days. We had a chat with Gaimo designer Esmeralda Iturriaga who reveals how and which ones to wear.


Manufactured 100% in Spain, Gaimo espadrilles have an artisan production feel about them but incorporate a good use of new technologies. This family business has been designing and manufacturing this exclusive product for over 40 years and it has become a summer basic thanks to its unique designs and comfort. They currently export to over 40 countries, partner with luxury fashionwear companies, and are set to launch their on-line shop this year.

Esmeralda, which is the must-have model for every woman’s wardrobe this summer?

Without a doubt the slip-ons, mules, and lace-up espadrilles in earth colours, reds and mustards.

Which are this year’s in materials?

Soft, natural materials like linen, silk, crochet, tweed, raffias and canvas all make up this year’s collection. Tassels, fringes, reef knots, and frayed cuts. Plus, for each collection, we like to create our own fabrics, patterns and embroidery with exclusive designs.

It is true that espadrilles are a 100% sustainable product?

Absolutely. They are made using top quality, 100% natural materials. That is why they are so comfortable. Plus, at Gaimo we ensure they are perfectly shaped with quality soles, cushioned insoles, and use soft materials and leathers.

That is why anyone can wear high wedge Gaimos! So where can we buy them?

They are available in many shoe shops throughout Spain, and part of our collection is available online at www.gaimo.com. This on-line shop also features special edition models.
