The story begins in 1979 in Bucaramanga with grandma Herminia, a mother with four kids to maintain. With her couture skills she started to sew modest shoes, without ever imagining that this craft would awaken a family vocation.

With the need to finance his studies, his son Jorge joined the business and rapidly transformed the small entrepreneurship into a big shoe factory. This is how the shoemakers' family was born.

Visiting their father's factory daily, Sonia and Yenny Garces grew up with the savoir faire of a shoemaker. Decades after its closure, the entrepreneurs decided to revive this family business along with the launch of their firm. Based abroad, Sonia is the one who develops the strategy while Yenny, the designer, creates authentic pieces in natural leather from her hometown. For them, their brand is a dream come true and a way to strengthen their bond from a distance.
