Castañer

Castañer the formidable creator of the Spanish espadrilles dates back to 1776, where the first of the family’s artisans, Rafael Castañer, created the sandals by hand. In 1960, Yves St Laurent enlisted the family business to produce the first espadrille wedge, now known as Carina. Castañer has been making espadrilles for top fashion houses ever since.
