Made in Spain

The design team at El Naturalista, led by Francisco Sota, travel all over the world seeking inspiration from its peoples, culture, history and legends, giving El Naturalista its life philosophy, and acting out its travel stories which inspire each line. On arrival at the destination, an El Naturalista designer looks at their sole, and the shape that it takes representing the natural form of the place, which provide the exclusive designs for those who are walking through life.


El Naturalista’s manufacturing facilities are located in the Rioja region of Spain, just outside of Pamplona. This allows El Naturalista to employ the artisans responsible for continuing the rich shoemaking tradition of the region, while utilizing the latest Spanish shoemaking technology. Each seasonal collection of shoes is designed and developed in Spain. The vast majority of materials, including all the leather, textiles and soles are made in Spain.
