Back from a family road-trip in South America, Bérengère Perret – whose background is in events and project management – decided to launch the shoes line Espigas in 2010. Inspired by the Argentinian gauchos’ espadrilles called “alpargatas”, the shoes are all double cotton-lined, genuinely comfortable and light to wear ... as well as twisted with South of France emblematic colours. Design, comfort, solidarity (part of the profit is donated to an NGO) and a “Choose freedom” lifestyle dimension to which concept-stores and interior design stockists really respond to.
