Mexas shoes, a young brand that recovers a tradition with more than 500 years

The first huaraches sink into the roots of the American continent, being footwear that was already made by the inhabitants of the continent before the arrival of the first European explorers. This primitive huarache was made of cotton, after the arrival of the Spanish people in Mexico, they were perfected, beginning to be made with leather straps as we know them today, that's why when you buy Mexas shoes, you wear your feet a shoe with more than 500 years of history

Since then the manufacturing techniques have changed little, being a shoe that is made by hand almost entirely, and where the craftsman's skill plays a very important role. As an artisan shoe, it is completely normal to find small imperfections and details that make each shoe unique. Far from being considered a defect, this gives the huarache shoe a unique personality.

Huaraches Mexas, from Mexico for you

Until a few years ago, this type of footwear was worn mainly by friars, peasants and locals. Until new generations of young people have 'rediscovered' this traditional footwear and have fallen in love with these comfortable shoes with designs and colors that transmit the energy and light of Mexico.

The name 'huarache' derives from the word "kwarachi" of the Purépecha or Tarascan language, and refers to both a type of shoes and sandals made in Mexico. In Mexas they have wanted to maintain the tradition, adding a touch of the current style, with designs and colors designed for European women. All Mexas huaraches shoes are made in Sahuayo de Morelos.

Making the huaraches

The Mexas shoes are manufactured by artisans, who in many cases have inherited the family tradition of making them. In many cases they are people who have been in the trade for more than 30 years. It is very common for factories to have family ties, and for several generations and members of the same family to work together in the same factory.

The Mexas brand huaraches that you can find in our online shoe store, are made in natural leather and handmade. Each pair of huarache shoes usually passes through the hands of more than 10 people throughout its manufacturing process.

Following the traditions of several generations, currently the young people of the Sahuayo area have continued the traditions and family businesses, updating the factories with technology and innovation, but without losing the essence in the elaboration of this type of footwear.

Huaraches shoes, artisan tradition

Depending on the braid design, it usually takes about 2 hours to make a pair of Mexas shoes. And the most complex part, and the one that requires more time and skill on the part of the person who makes us, is the braiding, or 'encorrallar' the strips that will form the braiding of the leather strips.

The entire process of braiding or 'encorrellado' is traditionally carried out by women, who are usually called 'Las encorrelladoras'. Many of them are housewives who make huaraches in their spare time due to their housework, family care, etc. and that in this way they achieve extra income for the household.

Mexas shoes are made by a great team of Huarachero master craftsmen and women. Using only high quality materials such as leather and natural rubber, with a careful manufacturing process, that is why Mexas huaraches are comfortable and quality shoes, the result of a transparent industry.

Mexas, footwear with a social commitment

Mexas is a very young footwear brand, which has been on the market since 2019, and since its inception they have opted to be a benchmark for responsible production, the Spanish brand of huarache shoes made in Mexico has wanted to give back to society part of its profits, so with each pair of huaraches sold they donate €1.00 to Mujeres Aliadas, an association that fights for the dignity and health of girls, adolescents and women in Michoacán.

But the social commitment of Mexas does not end with this initiative, they are also fully committed to the environment, another detail to take into account is that the brand's shoes are made with natural cowhide leather, the colors of They are obtained with vegetable dyes. In addition, the packaging and containers are made with 90% recycled materials, and at the same time are 100% recyclable.

Thus, the Mexas shoes not only blend tradition, originality and modernity. They are also committed to responsible and sustainable consumption, and at Calzados Rosi we are very proud to be part of this project.
