Alpargatas are emblematic of Colombian tradition and culture, a link to the past that intersects with modern fashion.

Originally introduced by Spanish conquistadors and colonisers, different towns now produce their own distinctive variations, adapting these versatile shoes to their unique traditions and industry.

These alpargatas, from Curití, Santander, are identifiable by their natural fique soles, a renewable plant which is symbolic of the region.

In the indigenous Guane language, Curití means “town of weavers”, and today the town has inherited this textile tradition, producing not only these striking alpargatas, but also a vibrant fique industry, from baskets and hats, to paper and even furniture.
