Traditional espadrilles are made of eco-friendly jute, a natural vegetable fiber that’s 100% recyclable and biodegradable. The quality of your espadrilles depends on the material of the sole. At VISCATA, we only use natural jute to make our authentic rope soles, from espadrille wedges to flats for men and women. The jute threads are woven and braided in beautiful designs by hand.
Plus, we’ve designed softer, more comfortable fabric tops and elastics for a custom fit to your feet. The result? A stylish, long-lasting, marvelously comfortable pair of shoes. Your VISCATA espadrilles are good for you and good for the planet. We are deeply committed to sustainability, and we plant a tree for every pair of shoes purchased with the organisation Treecycler.
As people become more and more environmentally conscious, jute is used as an excellent resource for a variety of products, from eco-friendly yoga mats to trendy jute rugs. In fact, jute sandals have been found by archaeologists and are said to be 4,000 years old—the original eco-friendly shoes! Over the centuries crafting espadrilles has become an art form, and at VISCATA we continue this tradition with soft, high-quality materials. We combine Spanish craftsmanship with modern manufacturing techniques to ensure your espadrilles are comfortable right out of the box. We also offer an wide selection of vibrant colors and elegant, stylish designs for every pair.
