About

The Drifter Leather consists of a team: Callie, Christianna, Maria and Garifalos.
We are a small family business with tons of love for what we do!
Callie is a photographer and graphic designer, Christianna is a musician and their mother and father, Maria and Garifalos, have over 20 years of experience in the shoe industry.

We decided to work on a kind of an old-fashioned project: to hand-craft shoes that are comfortable and sustainably made with custom measurements, respecting individuality, the nature of the human body, and the value of materials that sometimes are thrown away due to mass production.

The heritage we carry goes three generations back. Our beloved grandmother, and Maria's mother, was a very talented modiste back in the 60's. Our grandfather, Garifalos's father, was a really creative cobbler who…

We decided to work on a kind of an old-fashioned project: to hand-craft shoes that are comfortable and sustainably made with custom measurements, respecting individuality, the nature of the human body, and the value of materials that sometimes are thrown away due to mass production.

The heritage we carry goes three generations back. Our beloved grandmother, and Maria's mother, was a very talented modiste back in the 60's. Our grandfather, Garifalos's father, was a really creative cobbler who also produced shoe designs.

In memory of the people who taught us everything, but also in memory of "the old times" when craftsmanship was an everyday reality, we decided to make a line of ethically produced shoes.

Everything you see around our shop is hand-cut and sewn! The Drifter team owns the creative process, from the patterns to the photographs. Most of our designs are limited and when restocked, we usually offer new editions featuring new colors and textures.

We always use excellent quality materials, trying to recycle as we seek leather put aside. We never purchase it in lots and we utilize pieces to create our small collection of accessories.

For all the reasons above, we are very passionate about arts and crafts, and this shop is a great challenge for our imagination.

Our studio-showroom in Pylea, Thessaloniki used to be a garage and, as all garage bands do, we are jamming with our ideas. Our designs are the product of unity, cooperation and heritage.

Hope you enjoy our collection!
