OUR STORY

[/ux_text] [gap height=”15px”]

Created in 2017 by Laurie Cazaux, Atelier Aliénor is a French maison that offers espadrilles for women. Above all, it is a creative adventure driven by a dream: create an espadrille that would have all the attributes of the finest shoe.

To achieve this, we sought out exceptional know-how in the historic cradle of espadrilles, in the heart of the south of France. We gently jostled our craftsmen to convince them to go further.

And if we were committed to offering an espadrille with the finest quality and crafted in France, we knew it would not come at any cost. Therefore, we had to rethink our entire project to offer a fair price. The absence of intermediaries and advertisement would allow us to invest in quality.

Espadrilles are often criticized for not being long lasting, not comfortable, or being unflattering. We invite you to discover our creations and we promise your vision of espadrille will be forever changed.

The story of Atelier Aliénor is closely linked to mine.

I grew up in the south of France where the espadrille is so much more than a summer shoe.

It is the memory of long lunches under the fig tree, the unique taste of sun-drenched apricots, the life on the village square on market day.

It embodies the attachment to simple and real things, the art of loving life and cherishing time.

So we took the time to create, the time to do well.

I wish you a lovely discovery,

“As a little girl, I was passionate about ballet. I can see myself in my impeccable tights and leotard, looking with admiration at the young ballerinas putting on their pointes and delicately interlacing the satin ribbons around their ankles. From this memory were born our lace up sandals.

It is said that some children never grow up. That little girl is still here. Even as an adult, I am moved by little things like a sun ray or a snowflake. It is the very essence of my creation.”

ABOUT OUR NAME…

[/col] [/row] [gap height__sm=”0px”] [row v_align=”middle”] [col span=”5″ span__sm=”12″ padding__sm=”0px 0px 0px 0px”]

We believe that traditional skills and craftsmanship should be preserved. Espadrilles originally come from France and yet, only 1% of the world’s espadrilles are handmade there.

We wanted to honor this heritage and that’s why we added the word “Atelier” to our name. An ATELIER is the French word for craft workshop.

ALIENOR is a famous name here with reference to Aliénor d’Aquitaine, Queen of France in the Middle Ages.
Adventurous and ambitious, she is one of History’s most powerful woman.

We all have a little of Aliénor in us!

NOTRE HISTOIRE

[/ux_text] [gap height=”15px”]

Créée en 2017 par Laurie Cazaux, Atelier Aliénor est une maison d’artisans sandaliers spécialisée dans l’espadrille. Mais c’est surtout une aventure créative animée par un seul rêve : celui de créer une espadrille qui s’élèverait au rang des plus beaux souliers.

Pour y parvenir, nous sommes allées chercher le savoir-faire d’exception dans le berceau historique de l’espadrille, en plein cœur du Pays Basque. Nous avons gentiment bousculé nos artisans pour les convaincre d’aller encore plus loin.

Et si nous avions à cœur d’offrir une espadrille de qualité inégalée et de fabrication française, nous savions que cela ne se ferait pas sans coût. Il a donc fallu repenser entièrement notre projet pour proposer un prix juste. Ce serait donc l’absence d’intermédiaire et de publicité qui permettraient l’investissement en qualité.

On reproche souvent à l’espadrille de ne durer qu’une saison, de ne pas être confortable, d’être peu flatteuse. Ce que nous vous proposons aujourd’hui, c’est de découvrir notre univers et nos créations.

Votre vision de l’espadrille en sera changée à jamais.

L’histoire d’Atelier Aliénor est intimement liée à la mienne.

J’ai grandi dans le sud de la France où l’espadrille est bien plus qu’une chaussure de beaux temps.

C’est le souvenir de grandes tablées sous le figuier, l’animation de la place du village un jour de marché, le plaisir de croquer dans un abricot gorgé de soleil.

Elle incarne l’attachement aux choses simples et véritables, cet art d’aimer la vie et de chérir le temps.

Nous avons donc pris le temps de créer, le temps de bien faire.

Je vous souhaite une belle découverte,

“Enfant, j’étais passionnée de danse classique. Je me revois dans mon collant et justaucorps impeccables, regarder avec admiration les “grandes” chausser leurs pointes et entrelacer délicatement les rubans de satin autour de leur cheville. De ce souvenir est née notre sandale à ruban.

On dit que certains enfants ne grandissent jamais. Cette petite fille est toujours là. Même adulte, je suis émue par de petites choses comme un rayon de soleil ou un flocon de neige. C’est l’essence même de ma création.”
