Summer raffia shoes are one of those simple delights that are very close to my heart. There is so much beauty in something so simple like raffia. Of course, it takes great skill and specific technology to make raffia look like that. Paloma Barceló, one of this blog’s most admired brands, is in full possession of both. The Las Bailarinas brand did something similar, but it was a much smaller company and it didn’t stay in business, unfortunately. But their little raffia bluchers were adorable.
Here is something to look forward to in these chilly winter months – a raffia ballerina from Paloma Barceló‘s Spring-Summer 2017 collection.

These ballerinas are now available on the Paloma Barceló website, as well as these sandals of a similar type:
The “Cely” sandal is made out of viscose rope, not raffia, but it has a very similar look. The Paloma Barceló Spring-Summer 2017 collection is delightful in and of itself and it warrants a separate post. For now, I leave you with the “Cely” sandal and the beautiful summer raffia shoes – a little breath of the Mediterranean.
