My tan and beige ones just came in yesterday and I love them! They feel so light and are absolutely adorable. I will definitely be ordering another pair from Julie soon! :)

About

An invitation to walk this earth with light feet and light heart!

Hello there, I am Julie. I am from Montreal, Canada and have been living in Latin America since 2001.

My journey started in Mexico, travelling, walking this earth with light feet and light heart. That is where I started to make a living out of my handcraft. I traveled around Mexico and Guatemala for a couple years and learned everything I could from the craftspeople in all the different regions. It was a time of much openness, I experienced many different materials and techniques.

I gradually defined a main material I preferred to work with.
I love all that includes weaving, crocheting, knitting natural fibers as wool, cotton, yarns of all kinds.

I found inspiration for creating my shoes in one of the most beautiful and inspiring place on earth, Lago Atitlán, Guatemala. There, a Brazilian girl taught me how to make what would become the prototype of my Mary Jane shoes. I made myself a pair and I used them on my trip. I loved them.

A couple years later, I settled down in Montevideo, Uruguay. Here, the shoes lived their evolution, went through different stages to become what they are today: my personal and original version.
I am truly happy to offer them to you in this awesome craftspeople community that is Etsy.

And, by the way, I love to hear from you! All of your comments, feedback, questions and suggestions are feeding my evolution in this fascinating on-my-own-handmade-world!

Thank you for visiting!

All parcels are registered with the "track & trace" system. We'll send you a shipping notification with your tracking number. Please note that someone has to sign when receiving the parcel.

Refunds and Exchanges
We make the shoes with your measurements. If we make a mistake, we will assume the responsability, we will fix the shoes or make another pair and pay for the shipping back and forth. That's why we always double check and try to be 100% sure of the measurements before making them.
If you make a mistake measuring your foot, we can't afford the responsability for it.
The shoes are custom-made, so there are no possible exchanges or refunds.
