90 years of loving tradition


In 1927 the first Castañer workshop was founded, since then we have turned a shoe of popular origin into a sophisticated product, closely linked to design and fashion.

Our meeting with Yves Saint Laurent in the 70's made history in the fashion world, together we created the first espadrille with wedge.

Today, after 90 years, our product has reached the whole world, but our essence is still as authentic as in 1927: tradition, craftsmanship and natural materials.


The Castañer brand opens its first workshop in Bañolas. Luis Castañer and his cousin Tomás Serra were the driving forces behind the first industrialization of the company. Tomás Serra then designed the machines, now over a hundred years old, which are still used today in the workshop.
