Mapache was born in 2015 by 2 French designers and friends. After a yearlong trek through Mexico, where they explored the culture and took in the beauty of the landscape, they were introduced to the impeccable local craftsmanship, which inspired a reinterpretation of the traditional Mexican "Huarache" shoe. They created designs that draw on the original, incorporating the traditional technique of hand weaved leather, tweaked, to cater for a modern lifestyle and realised in a variety of lively colours, bringing a dash of Mexican Culture to our pale European feet. Each pair is handmade in workshops based in Michoacan, by artisans, who hold artistry, expertise and skill passed on to them through their ancestors. Mapache is committed to preserving Mexican craftsmanship and traditional know-how.
