Canfora Sandals, Capri, Italy


A couple of weeks ago I went to Capri, the Italian island loved by the Roman emperors and made famous by Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly and the European jetset in the 1950s and 1960s. Capri is breathtakingly beautiful, but has a lot more to offer than nature alone.

In fact in Capri you can shop till you drop! All the big names are present: Gucci, Chanel, Hermès, Dolce & Gabbana, you name it. If there is one souvenir you should bring home though, it's a pair of handmade sandals. And the best place to shop is without a doubt Canfora in Via Camerelle.

Amedeo Canfora opened his shop in 1946 and has been the "official supplier" to Jackie Kennedy, Maria Callas, many European royals, local and international celebrities ever since. I heard Michael Kors is a big fan.

Well, I'm a big fan too!!! The shop is tiny... but don't let that fool you! Canfora makes exquisite handmade sandals, using only the best materials, such as Italian leather and the finest Italian costume jewelry. What a joy to have your measurements taken and pick out the colours and adornments...

I could hardly wait until the package with my sandals arrived! The result is gorgeous don't you think?
