Our Athens Collection
- City: Athens, Greece
- Owner: Maria

What we love about this partner:
We are particularly proud to have debuted our first collection with this women-owned manufacturing partner, a quality exceedingly rare in our business. We immediately shared a strong connection with the owner as we both shared something in common: being women in a heavily male-dominated industry.
Beyond that, we were instantly won-over by their sandal fabrication: 100% natural-tanned leather without chemicals. This manufacturer also offers a selection of woven leathers, as well as an interesting vegan material: raphia, a textile derived from palm leaves. Moreover, her production possesses an artisanal quality that is a value-add to our eyes. Working with this country allows us to encourage an economy that has experienced much difficulty in recent times and at the same time to diversify our own offerings.
