The Mandarina Story

The Mandarina Story

More Bond Street than High Street, Mandarina has - literally - established 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!

Mandarina Shoes was founded in 2004 by textile specialist Caroline Townsend. The Scottish-based company specialises in creating classic footwear out of unique and original fabrics sourced from all over the world.   

Our pumps and ankle boots in pure Harris Tweed lend a fun twist to a traditional home-grown fabric. Other fabrics we use are lustrous velvets, richly coloured suedes, classic Liberty lawns, toiles, linens and beautiful silk brocades.

Our range of footwear includes ballet pumps, kitten heels, court shoes, slingbacks, long boots, chelsea boots, ankle boots and mules, available in a vast range of colours and fabrics. No matter what shoe or boot you choose, when you shop Mandarina, you are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.  

Our Mandarina own-brand shoes are painstakingly and individually hand-made in a small family-run factory in Vietnam, whilst the boots, sneakers and espadrilles are made in Spain. The signature shoe linings in vivid colours, and the orange silk shoe bags and mailing boxes are now synonymous with the Mandarina brand. 

Limited editions. Fun, Quirky and Original - Mandarina Shoes are unique and beautiful.
