Today I bought myself a pair of espadrilles.
Navy blue ones.
A must-have for a holiday in France.
Originally they come from the Pyrenees.
Made from canvas or cotton with a sole made from rope. Now also made in leather.
Sometimes they have a rubber sole.
The canvas is stitched to the sole with a visible feston stitch.
This is the simple French version.
Made since the 14th Century and still made in France and Spain.
Mine are made in Máuléon.
Still worn by many admirers.
I am one of them.
