Marrakech. On the edge of the Medina, in the leatherworking quarter, an artisan and his apprentice take narrow strips of leather and braid them in intricate patterns, stitch soles with the grace of a dancer, craft pompoms like sandroses. A soft lattice takes shape, one that speaks of a souk alive with voices, a cool riad, a friend’s house, sandals kicked off at the door as easy as breathing. Some years ago, Louis Barthélemy stumbled on this workshop and was enchanted. A collaboration was born, a collection of handmade sandals inspired by the archaic beauty of Moroccan life, its deep connection with nature, its arid, generous, timeless landscapes.
