The Avarca originated from the Island of Menorca. It was formerly a traditional footwear used by the farmers and rural people as it was strong and adaptable to the Menorcan countryside.
The soles were originally made from old car tyres, as it was a readily available material. As the sandals grew in popularity across Spain many imitations arose but to be an authentic Avarca, the sandals must be made in full and by hand on the Island of Menorca.
In order to protect the heritage and authenticity of the sandals, the Menorcan government produced a tag to reflect this (which all Palmaira’s have). Our factory uses traditional methods, and we work with an incredible, well respected shoe designer, who has tweaked Palmaira’s to give the female foot the most flattering shape.
Please choose carefully when purchasing from our 'Minor Imperfections' collection, as they are not eligible for a refund or exchange.
All our sandals are lovingly handmade. This sometimes results in a few flaws, or imperfections in the leather.
Leather is a natural product and as such, bares all hallmarks of its origin. Unique and individual markings may appear on a hide and should not be considered as defects. Instead they give the leather a unique identity.
Other reasons for imperfections could include, but not limited to, glue marks or scratches. As such these sandals are sold at a discounted price.
