    AMBAR

    InuitThe source of our inspiration is sometimes a small insect, sometimes a sweet fairy, or other times an aloof swallow… Inspiration is one of the most important elements of our shoe design. What we seek with our footwear is to bring beautiful things to your feet that will inspire you in your walk through life.

    During my life I have traveled from place to place. I cannot count on both my hands all the cities I have visited, or the homes that have received me, sometimes with open arms and other times with their arms crossed. I have studied in eight different schools. Today I can say that the world is my home, and each person that I have had the good fortune of sharing my journey with is part of my family.

    The inspiration for this collection, presented in the shape of a fragile, light, and hard substance is the amber. The only precious stone that is know to originate from vegetables. For more than 30 million years, trees have produced this resin, which acts as a protection against illnesses and infections. With this collection we try to guard your feet from any harm, to make them lighter as you climb uphill, and to protect them from the impact of the hard road. We want every step you take to be accompanied by the passion that inspires us to create our shoes. Our philosophy is not limited to just covering your feet, but to caressing them and to protecting them, thus to making your journey both simpler and more authentic.

    It was Thales of Miletus, who lived around 600 BC and was considered one of the seven wise people of Greece, who first noticed how the blades of grass were attracted to the amber stone after he had rubbed it against his robe. The name electron comes from the Greek word for amber and is a fundamental subatomic particle. And it is the energy that comes from human beings that makes the universe so special; this energy is duplicated each time that it encounters other energies and for this reason is it imperative that we respect others and give the best of ourselves.

    We want to do our part to make you life easier. We know it is sometimes difficult to forge ahead, or to change direction, or even to simply meet the challenges of a routine day. We hope our shoes and their inspiration make your journey more beautiful, more authentic, and more natural.
