Workshop progress

Samira welcomes you to her studio-workshop for a journey into the world of shoes and handmade manufacturing.

Raffia is a plant fiber, taken from a palm tree endemic to Madagascar. The fiber is very resistant and allows multiple weaving effects as well as subtle color nuances.

Following a theoretical introduction to raffia, the different components of a sandal, the tools and materials used for manufacturing, you will choose your ergonomic sole, your skins, and begin manufacturing your patterns and shapes. The colors and choice of materials are fully customizable. You will test different patterns and depending on which one suits your foot best, you will put together your final pair.

Don’t hesitate to deploy your creativity, Samira will be there to guide and inspire you 🙂

A magnificent journey into committed craftsmanship, with a strong and dynamic vision.
