Established in 1958, La Botte Gardiane specializes in handcrafted boots, shoes and sandals. Their sandals are handmade at their Atelier in Villetelle, France, using leathers from such tanneries as Degermann, which also supplies Hermes, and other luxury brands. For the sole and insole, the leather used is tanned with vegetable extracts from quebracho, mimosa, and chestnut. This leather is chromium free which is healthier for your feet.
In 2007, La Botte Gardiane was certified as a “Living Heritage Company” by the French government. This label rewards outstanding companies for their specific heritage, traditional “savoir-faire”, and passion for their work.
We just received our Summer delivery of sandals in 3 styles: A braided navy criss cross leather sandal with ankle strap (pictured below), a taupe suede sandal (pictured above), and a black metallic sandal with two narrow bands, and an ankle strap with a covered heel (not pictured – see it in store!) The sandals are each priced at $199.
New summer hats have arrived from Japan! Super popular last Summer, most styles from Mature Ha Japan are box hats and come folded in boxes just 1″ in height – great for travel. They are all one-size, and a smart addition to sunscreen when you’re outdoors this Summer.
