Xenophon Xirouchakis

Xirouchakis's son Michael , Xenophon Xirouchakis, takes over the administration until today.

The current owner, being a restless spirit from a young age, decided in 1997, to take over the development of the family business. It thus differentiated the mode of operation, the technology & know-how required for the manufacture of purely handmade leather sandals.
Now, the 2nd generation of the company specializes in the field of sandal making and leather. It is active in the field of handicrafts and trade of leather goods as a sole proprietorship both throughout Greece and abroad.

The branch

His wider acquaintance with the needs of the place, on a social & business level, leads him to think about the creation of the first branch based in Kissamos. Its goal is on the one hand the acquaintance of the local community with the handicrafts in Gramvousa and on the other hand, the support and strengthening of the local market-entrepreneurship.

Information, ideas, respect for history and a modern perception of aesthetic value, combined with experience and love for the product it manufactures, are basic principles of the company. The specialized staff as well as the privately owned facilities of about 500 sqm, give the company the opportunity to serve every customer, consistent in quality, but also in the time and manner of delivery of products, which ranks it as one of the top of its kind.

The company

Our Craft has the ability to produce 400-500 pairs of sandals, daily, as well as the ability to make new designs that are not included in our Catalog, always according to customer needs.
In addition, each company can put its logo on the sandals, with the technique of Laser (free) or with the technique of pyrography. “
The know-how in combination with the experience, the inspiration, the passion and the love for our work, is the motivation for the continuous upgrade of our Craft.

Our Craft manufactures handmade Greek sandals with genuine Greek leathers, which are processed in local tanneries of Chania, Crete, the so-called Tabakaria. We make high quality handmade sandals, with the traditional way of construction, both in the natural color of the skin (Vaketa), which color differs with sunlight (characteristic of genuine leather), as well as in various colors. We use Greek quality “Eva” tires, made in Thessaloniki.
