Es Par Ta was founded in 2015 upon the ancient craft of hand made alpargatas, a shoe making technique that dates back centuries. Alluding to esparto, the natural fiber roots that comprise the soles, Es Par Ta is also a playful hybrid of romance languages meaning, “it’s for you.”
Es Par Ta hopes to preserve valued ancient handmade shoe and textile traditions and create social and economic opportunities for women artisans, and to date has worked with artisans in Spain, Japan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and Italy.
