& The history of



Xirouhakis Michael, father of the present owner, founded the craft in Gramvousa, Kissamos, Chania.
shoe craftsmanship



The son of Xirouhakis Michael, Xenophon Xirouhakis, takes over the management 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. He thus diversified the way of operation, the technology & know-how required to manufacture purely handmade leather sandals. Now, the 2nd generation of the company specializes in the field of sandal making and leather. It operates in the field of leather craftsmanship and trading as a sole proprietorship both in Greece and abroad.



The restless nature of the owner, combined with his love for the place where he grew up, leads him to his active involvement in the community, cultural, municipal, business.



His wider acquaintance with the needs of the place, on a social and business level, leads him to the thought of creating the first branch based in Kissamos. His aim is, on the one hand, to acquaint the local community with the craftsmanship in Gramvousa and, on the other hand, to support and strengthen the local market-entrepreneurship.

Information, ideas, respect for history and a modern perception of aesthetic value, combined with experience and love for the product manufactured, are the basic principles of the company. The qualified staff and the privately owned facilities of about 500 sqm, give the company the ability to serve every customer, with consistency in quality, but also in the time and manner of delivery of products, which makes it one of the leading of its kind.

The company

Our craft has the ability to produce 400-500 pairs of sandals daily, as well as the ability to manufacture new designs that are not included in our catalogue, always according to the needs of the customer. In addition, each company can put its logo on the sandals, using the laser technique (free of charge) or the pyrography technique." 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 tires "Eva", manufactured in Thessaloniki.
