How to make Espadrilles

Posted on June 25, 2015 by The Makery | 5 comments

The world has gone Espadrille crazy! This season the traditional Spanish soft shoe has reached new heights and we're loving it!

Espadrilles are big news this summer with pairs by designers such as Louis Vuitton, Chloé and Fendi, making a whopping £370 and last year Chanel selling out of their interlocking trademark "C" logo with pairs reaching up to £700 on eBay! Not bad for former peasant shoes.

At The Makery we offer how to make espadrilles workshops in our John Lewis, Oxford Street and Bath Makery workshop where we show you how to make your very own pair in your favourite fabric. But don't worry if you can't make it to see us we sell everything you need to make a pair of your own. A pair for every outfit!

Watch our step by step How to make Espadrilles video tutorial. 

We hope you enjoy making them. Don't forget to share your finished shoes on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag them #makerymakes to be in with a chance to win £10 worth of fabric each month - perfect for your next pair!

    Just watched the Espadrille tutorial and interested in making some for myself. Can find soles in the shop but despite you stating, ‘we sell everything to make a pair of your own’, I am unable to find the pattern.
