Wholesale leather sandals
The history of the company begins in 1987 with the founder Michael Xirouchakis, father of the current owner Xirouchakis Xenophon, who took over the management of the company from 1997 until today.
Starting from a shoemaker of the time, Mr. Michalis repaired, reconstructed, painted, took care of his shoes and finally, evolving his art, he started making traditional shoes & sandals himself. Near him were his children, who from an early age studied the art of leather processing.
The youngest son, Xenophon, being a restless spirit from a young age, decided in 1997, to take over the development of the family business, differentiating the mode of operation, technology & know-how required to make purely handmade leather sandals.
Now, the 2nd generation of the company specializes in the field of sandal making and leather. Information, ideas, respect for history and a modern perception of aesthetic value are basic principles of modern business.
The products presented today with the signature XX, are the result of an excellent combination of traditional techniques in the field of sandal making and modern design ideas and concepts for the management of materials.
The seat of the craft is the magical Gramvousa of Kissamos. 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 time and delivery of products, which makes it one of the top of its kind.
Genuine Greek leathers, which are processed in local tanneries of Chania, Crete, in the famous Tabakaria, are the basis for the production of entirely handmade high quality sandals, in the traditional way, both in the natural color of the skin which color differs from the light of the sun (characteristic of genuine skin), as well as in a variety of other colors.
The soles of the sandals are made both with the Greek rubbers of high quality & durability “Eva”, made in Thessaloniki, and with genuine leather for a very delicate result.
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 brochure.
In addition, every company that wishes is given the opportunity to imprint its logo on the sandals, with the technique of Laser or with the technique of pyrography, thus creating its own unique brand.
Inspired by the owner’s involvement with the skin from childhood, the XX collections not only highlight the handmade leather sandal, but also praise the rich local heritage, as it can be imprinted even on a pair of sandals, men , women or children.
