The Fashion Editor and Blogger Gabby Rucci dedicated this article to us in her Magazine Ourglam, thank you very much Gabby, we love it !!
In an environment in which today everything is ultra-processed, fast food, fast fashion and we are in such a hurry, a special predilection for handmade clothing, articles and footwear begins to emerge.
Day by day we meet more brands that bet on the authentic, artisanal, natural and especially the local product.
This is how we discovered the RIOJANITAS brand. It is a company based in Arnedo, a town in La Rioja, with a long tradition in the world of footwear, where jute sandals and espadrilles are created by hand, as for years.
The espadrille is an ecological, comfortable and original footwear, with an infinite variety of models, colors and designs. Their footwear is handcrafted and they attach the shoe to the jute sole only by hand sewing, which is the traditional way of doing it.
Its suppliers base their products on natural raw materials, such as jute (Known as the ‘golden fiber’, jute is one of the longest and most used natural fibers for various textile applications), cotton, leather, among others.
Riojanitas opened its online store a year ago, and there they sell jute footwear and collaborate with other Arnedo brands, with the intention of adding value to the local product that is manufactured in the region. Among its next plans is to extend its sales radio throughout Europe.
Among the characteristics of the shoes that we have tried, we can highlight: comfort, style, and design. They also have models for both men and women.
We invite you to get to know the brand and get a pair. You will love them!
