The Sandal & Origin
Certainly, sandals have been the first footwear ever made - possibly due to their simplicity.
All ancient civilizations have come across at least one sandal version.
And, since early civilization, sandal designs have evolved in style, form and shape.
Today, the influence of new manufacturing technologies, the introduction of new materials, and with aid of highly skilled craftsmen, the shoemaking industry has been revolutionized.
Special thanks go to Salvatore Ferragamo, whose shoes and sandals acquired a power of seduction in the 1920's and 30's.
Elegant, yet practical at the same time, Salvatore Ferragamo's creations have given exceptional importance to the humble job of the shoemaker.
Sandals & Isle of Capri
Thanks to the creativity in design and highly skilled shoemakers, many small shoemaker-shop-owners brought forth a burgeoning industry - as sandals became the attraction of many tourists visiting the Isle of Capri in the 1960's.
The jet-set, world of high-society and celebrities such as Sophia Loren and Jackie Kennedy were fascinated with the sandal designs in the region inspiring a global obsession.
Today, these small shop-owners continue to thrive, as the public continues to travel to Capri in search of unique sandals.
