Choosing artisan means supporting a form of economic development that has deep meaning, one that originates from and is rooted in the uniqueness of people and place.

By taking the time to have an honest conversation with ourselves about what we love to wear every day, we learn to appreciate the benefit of having one item instead of ten.

We feel honoured to work with brands that are committed to sustainable and ethical practices, and whose products are handmade and carry a real identity. Latin American designers don’t simply want to sell, they aspire to have a lasting and positive impact on their communities

Story

Our Alepel Bird And Rose Mules feature a comfortable slip-on silhouette with closed toes and slight heels. One mule is hand-painted with a blooming red rose, while the other is decorated with a colorful bird and leaves. Hand-painted by artists in Miami, Florida.

A Precious Rarity

What’s just as unique as ALEPEL’S shoes is the way they are produced — made-to-order, meaning, there’s never excess inventory — making ALEPEL both art-forward, artisan-supportive and sustainably-focused.
