The first commercial reference of an establishment in this place dates back to 1941 when the establishment started the activity as a workshop for the manufacture of espadrilles that combine traditional techniques with fashion trends. The Manual Alpargatera was the first workshop that made fashionable espadrilles, already in the 4s (before the espadrilles were considered as a type of footwear for peasant, low class, traditional in the country). Years later some others (already in the seventies), will also begin to do so, and now all kinds of people consider espadrilles as a very current piece. Emblematic trade.
