The first Castañer atelier was founded in 1927. Since then, they have turned a popular form of footwear into a sophisticated product closely associated with design and fashion.
Their encounter with Yves Saint Laurent in the 1970s went down in the history of world fashion, and together they created the first wedge espadrille. Salvador Dali, Grace Kelly and Brigit Bardo became loyal fans. The Castañer espadrille has become the essence of timeless chic, a perennial classic that never goes out of fashion.
Today, after 90 years, their shoes have a worldwide reach, but their essence remains as authentic as it was in 1927: tradition, craftsmanship and natural materials.
