“Kožené boty s ekvádorským šmrncem.

 Mladý designér vzkřísil v Praze rodinnou tradici” Hospodářské Noviny.

“Leather shoes and bags with Ecuadorian roots. 

A young designer resurrected a family tradition in Prague”

“The Ecuadorian designer found inspiration in Moravian folklore and Czech Cubism. Sewing classic shoes is boring for me, says Fernando Echeverria” Czechdesign.

Family tradition since 1930:

My roots come from a town named Cotacachi, in the Andes of Ecuador. That small city in the middle of the mountains and lakes is specialized in leather crafts, a tradition brought from South of Spain. 
My father and grandfather were saddlers developing their unique techniques and following the tradition of leather crafters. 
For my parents, It was a surprise that I would not be a doctor or engineer but a designer specializing in leather. Leather is in my blood. 

Footwear as art :

Why do you use traditional shoemaking techniques?

It’s very important for me to revive shoemaking. Most shoemakers in Prague and Europe are great, they are craftsmen. But it is extremely difficult to change their minds.

They have a clear idea in their head of how a shoe can be made and what it should look like. Such a shoe is technically perfect. But as a designer, I need to innovate, discover new ways and break the rules. For others, I may be weird that I make weird shoes and I don’t follow the rules.
