Each Elina Linardaki piece is made by hand in our microfactory in Athens, Greece. It is highly unusual in the footwear industry for a company to own their factory. That allows us to control all aspects of production, including the process of quality control and working conditions.
The goods produced by our company are made-to-order, a model that allows us to operate sustainably avoiding overproduction and waste. All styles are produced in limited quantities to ensure a carefully curated and small-scale production. Working with a number of Athens based artisans for both sampling and materials have reduced the brands shipping impact while supporting local businesses in and around Athens. Patience and slowness define our work, contributing to a more conscious and creative fashion industry.
The fact that our pieces are handmade to order allows us for size inclusivity, since most of our pieces are made in 34-45 European sizing. Also we offer custom made orders for wider or narrower forms.
