Our shoes are designed and hand crafted by the well known family of artisan shoemakers, Torres on the Spanish island of Menorca, in the Balearic Islands. Helios, who has worked in the footwear industry in Barcelona for 20 years was introduced to the Torres family as the best shoemakers in Spain.
Grandfather José, 94 and his seven children, run one of the longest running shoe manufacturers on Menorca. Each pair of shoes passes through each member of the family through their creation. From José cutting the leathers to his children sewing and boxing up the shoes bound for Australia.
The family´s attention to detail and passion is second to none. Their craftmanship so high that they are recognised as one of 10 shoe manufacturers in Menorca to be certified by the Menorcan Government to make and sell the original avarca sandals.
Together we work with Torres family to design and produce the original Spanish leather avarca sandals as well as new styles exclusive to Petit Barcelona. We visit their studio yearly, and we consider them family and an instrumental part of our business.
Each shoe has been designed to be worn with comfort and ease. We are proud to be making so many women happier, bringing them a little piece of our traditional Spain to Australia and beyond every day.
