Raíz Atelier is a conscious and fully circular, luxury footwear brand, highly focused on creating the perfect summer wedge. Inspired by nature and nostalgic summers, each wedge is hand-crafted in Spain and re-imagined from original 70s silhouettes.
Raíz Atelier is deeply rooted in environmentally considerate practices, transparency and circularity through responsible sourcing and manufacturing as well as the use of recyclable and compostable materials and components. Each wedge is hand-made using natural renewable plant-based materials; cork, wood and wicker. These materials form the roots of the brand.
Launched in 2021 by Founder and Creative Director Sam Jones, Raíz Atelier stands for slow fashion and 'Natural Luxury'; luxury in the simplicity of the design and natural materials, the craftmanship and limited availability.
Our design-atelier and office is in London and our artisanal factories are based in Alicante, Spain.
