The abarcas are traditional Spanish sandals made from leather with recycled rubber soles. They were originally worn by farmers back in the 1920s and were handmade by artisans on the island of Menorca in the Baleares. Today they are deeply rooted in Spanish culture.
So this popular Spanish sandal, is where it all started. It sparked KinaMania's adventure. KinaMania is a brand name with roots in menorquina, the alternative name for the abarca which was originally handmade on the island of Menorca in the Baleares. The mania for Kinas is born from menorquina mania.

Caty and Antonio. The lovely couple, owners of a small family factory specialised in making traditional Menorcan abarcas and artisans at heart. It with them that I developed the Kinamania line of sandals back in 2015.
