Making a material difference

We have five main types of materials that we use to make our beautiful Viscata
espadrilles and shoes - leather, jute, suede, canvas and recycled materials.

The softest natural leather

As a slow fashion brand, we only use leather that is certified by the Leather Working Group. As a result, all the leather we use in our shoes is smooth and supple with a gorgeous semi-gloss and a uniform color for an elegant, high quality look.
