Let me introduce you to Alice & Whittles. It’s a starting footwear company based in Switzerlamd that specializes in Espadrilles. Nicholas Horekens, co-founder of the company launched the spring summer 2013 espadrille shoes that blend the traditional value and skills of artisans in France and India. All shoes are handmade and the company also aim to reduce poverty by working closely with the artisans who are crafting their espadrilles. They also provide health insurance, training, low-cost infrastructure and no interest advance payments through local NGOs. The spring summer 2013 collection consists of three different styles (1) bright solid colours, (2) bold prints, and (3) embroidered fabrics.
