Nisolo Shoes | Handmade in Peru

Empowering artisans/crafters around the globe to provide opportunities. I love coming across social enterprises that align with that statement.  I stumbled upon Nisolo on Pinterest when I found a pair of amazing strappy leather sandals and needed to know who made them! Upon reading Nisolo’s story, I knew they would be a permanent bookmark and a go-to for new shoes.

The founders of Nisolo came across a shoemaker in Trujillo, Peru while they were working with a microfinance organization nearby.  The shoes were beautifully handcrafted and genuine leather.  The team had spent quite some time in Peru and understood that the lack of access to a larger market would prevent this shoemaker, and thousands alike, to sustainably provide for his family. That is when NISOLO was born! The team has dedicated themselves to work with shoemakers in Peru to create a line that not only appeals to the Western Market but provides sustainable employment to the artisans and crafters behind this incredible collection!

Enjoy!
