Design and make your own reclaimed leather or vegan espadrilles with Juta Shoes.
Juta is a social enterprise based in East London using eco-friendly materials to create handcrafted shoes and supporting local women into work.
Our experienced makers offer expert instruction and support, and everyone walks out in their own pair of shoes. All materials are provided and no experience necessary. All our leather is reclaimed from local factory offcuts, and we have a wide range of colours, textures, and patterns. We use premium jute soles sourced from southern Spain, which are thicker, more robust, and comfier than any other espadrille sole we’ve seen, so you’ll be sure to love wearing your shoes.
What you will do:
- Choose from our stock of leather reclaimed from local factory offcuts and vegan upcycled materials
- Choose your style and cut out your pattern
- Learn to shape and pin the shoe to the sole
- Handstitch the leather to the sole with waxed linen thread
Level: Beginners. No prior experience required.
Spaces are limited for this event!

We hope you can join us!
