And there you have it, the definitive list of where you can purchase authentic Avarcas in Australia.

If you do pop into one of these stores, tell ‘em Nae sent you and she said HI!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’ve been an avid Avarca lover for some time, you’d know I’m ALL about authenticity.

When I stumbled across this fine shoes, I knew I had to have more.

I searched high and low to locate the manufacturers so I could place a bulk order for me and my lady friends.

Through my internet investigating, I stumbled across a family-run business called Monica Menorca run by the Juanede Marqués family.

Today, I want to share a little more about this beautiful family.

 

About Monica Menorca

 

Mónica Menorca is a family business established in 1926. They have been crafting traditional shoes since they first opened their doors. They specialise in Avarcas Menorca for men, women and children.

Since its inception, the Juaneda Marqués family has been concerned both with the quality of its products and with the comfort and comfort that its customers could offer the shoes that, generation after generation, they have been carefully making.

Avarcas have a rich and colourful history in Spain and I’m thrilled we can embrace the authentic traditional shoe here in Australia.

“What we value most about living in Menorca is tranquillity and calm, not having to run from one side to the other (we can cross the island in an hour) to be able to trust people, enjoy nature, beaches, good weather... It really is our little paradise and we wouldn't trade it for anything.”  - Juaneda Family

 

Meet The Team

 

When I finally made the track to Menorca, Spain last year I wanted to learn *everything* there is to know about crafting my much-loved Avarcas. And that I did. I learnt how the leather is dyed. All about hand stitching. The setting process. How glitter is glued so it stays put. How they keep the colours vibrant. How the leather stays soft. ALL of it.

Much more rewarding though was spending time with the Juaneda Family. The care they take in their work, their gentle nature and the stoic pride they have for their home is just beautiful. When I arrived at the workshop, I was greeted with a level of hospitality I had never experienced. Within about 30 minutes of me arriving, Carme (my go-to woman) invited me into her home to celebrate The Sunday of the Lamb (Dia Des Be), the first official day in the celebrations of the fiesta of Sant Joan with her entire extended family! It’s an experience I will treasure forever.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the A-Team behind Avarcas Australia.

 

JOSÉ

 

Jose is the chief and manager of the factory. Jose has grown watching his ancestors craft Avarcas and he couldn’t wait to follow suit. In 1975 he was given the official title of Cutter-Patron-Modeller which he still holds today, over 40 years later!

When Jose’s not crafting Avarcas, you can find him in his studio painting, walking the countryside and dabbling in photography.
