The Menorcan "Avarca" is perhaps the most well known piece of footwear to come out of the Balearic Islands. In fact these sandals are loved in so many places, that in each they call them by a different name; albarcas, avarcas, menorcan, esparteñas, queras, mallorquinas, palowers ... an infinity of names! and it's hardly surprising! It is such a comfortable and versatile shoe that we can't help feeling proud these traditional sandals were born here.
This is our "Porc Negre" Collection. Why the name? The Black Pig or "porc negre" as we call it here, is our native pig, for whom we have great affection and so we named our collection of emblematic Pitiusa island footwear in its honour.
With the help of Teixits Vicens, one of the few Pollensa factories who still lovingly make the traditional Mallorca "Cloth of Tongues" fabric, thread by thread, and jointly with our Menorcan shoemaking craftsmen, our Avarca sandals are born as a fusion of the essence of the two sister islands, Mallorca and Menorca. Available in summery colours; yellow, red, blue and green.
