The espadrille: A true cult item in Barcelona

La Manual Alpargatera - Barcelona

La Manual Alpargatera - Barcelona

The espadrille belongs to the DNA of Catalonia. Since 1943 La Manual Alpargatera is the most known manufacturer of espadrilles in Barcelona.
Catalonia has always cultivated hemp to make ropes, fabrics and espadrilles! One finds for example written references of its name as in Catalan “espardenya” as soons as 1322.
A long story which finishes well as it returns finally to be in vogue while becoming synonymous of Catalan nationalism (it belongs to the traditional costume), of ecology (return to nature), of fashion (with increasingly more connoisseurs) and of spring: one buys espadrille as of the first sun rays.
In the Gothic district, not far from the Ramblas, you will find also your sun ray in this extraordinary shop.
