Hello beautiful people!! I haven't been very active lately, but it's for a good reason (at least for me) My holiday has finally started, and it's going to be AMAZING. I'm writing now from England, where I've been staying a couple of days with my boyfriend, and finally tomorrow we are taking off to the Philippines!!! How exciting is that?
Leaving my excitement apart, I wanted to tell you about a really cool London based footwear brand called Juta Shoes, which whom I have recently collaborated with. I got into them through Instagram and I really liked their colourful and original designs. They work with high quality materials like reclaimed leather and they produce super cute and unique handmade espadrilles. They create many different designs with different colours and textures, for example, I received a green leather pair and also a beige/white pair of slippers. I have been wearing them for a couple of days and I have to say the leather is really soft, they are very comfortable and go with everything. They are original and classy as well as being the perfect final touch to your summer outfit❤
Apart from their fab espadrilles, what makes Juta Shoes special is their meaningful brand story. Their environmentally friendly approach using sustainable materials separates them from other brands. But what really touched me was their brand philosophy: their goal is to help unemployed women in the area of Tower Hamlets in London, empower them and teach them how to create beautiful high quality footwear that people will take pride in wearing.

They also host many different workshops so you can learn how to make your own pair of espadrilles. As they say on their website they make “shoes you feel good in” and I totally agree with it. I reckon we should all have a thought about the importance of helping and supporting local brands that, like Jutas, make a difference, since by doing that not only do we get a unique final product but we help our society to become a little bit better.
This is the other super nice colour that I got, cuties right?❤
