Gaimo was founded in 1975, by Jose Luis Iturriaga. The company began by designing only traditional espadrilles, but later revolutionized the global marketplace by creating a more sophisticated, fresh and feminine concept of jute. Amongst other factors, this was achieved by blending different materials and adding small details and embellishments. As well as using excellent fabrics and leathers. The essence of Gaimo comes from the hand making of each shoe, merging old traditions with new technologies; along with the use of exclusively natural and high quality materials. The shoes are entirely manufactured in Spain, with premium leathers and vegetable dyes, which help to create a final product with unmatched quality. For over 30 years, Gaimo shoes have been sold worldwide and can be found in the highest quality stores on almost every continent.
