More Bond Street than High Street, Mandarina is - literally - establishing a foot hold as one of the UK's foremost designer shoe brands and has a loyal following of celebrities and royals to prove it.
A young, Scottish-based company founded in 2004 by Caroline Townsend, Mandarina specialises in creating classic shoes and boots out of unique and original fabrics sourced from all over the world.
Mandarina's slingbacks and pixie boots in pure Harris Tweed lend a fun twist to a traditional home-grown fabric. Also in the collection are lustrous velvets, richly coloured suedes, classic Liberty lawns, toiles, linens and beautiful silk brocades.
The shoes are all painstakingly and individually hand-made in a family-run factory in Vietnam. The wild and wonderful shoe linings in vivid colours and animal prints along with the orange silk shoe bags and mailing boxes are now recogniseable signatures of the brand.
Limited edition, original and fun - Mandarina Shoes are unique and beautiful.
