The Canary Islands have a small Huarache tradition that goes back at least 50 years and about which very little is known about. And if you happen to be on the Island of Gran Canaria, there are still a few places where you can find an original pair of Canarian Huaracho. Which unlike Mexican Huaraches of today, Canarian Huarachos are still made by weaving single, very long strip of leather. There are 3 shops in the capital city of Las Palmas :- Fran López – C. Senador Castillo Olivares, 33, 35003 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Artesania Guarapo – C. Pavía, 25, 35010 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria FEDAC ..read more

A few weeks ago, while on holiday in Mexico I visited Senor Porfirio Montero Ortiz in Umán, a small town just south west of Merida, Yucatán. “Don Pio” as he is affectionately known by everyone locally, has been making Alpargatas for almost 60 years since he was just 12 years old. This huge mural in the photo below was painted by a local artist called Arnold Daniel Cruz Cetina, also Datoer, or Datoergs on Instagram. And is part of a series of portraits called “Pintado Recuerdos”, or Painted Memories. Like Huaraches, Alpargatas are traditional Mexican footwear from the Yucatán peninsula. The ea ..read more

Daniel Ysi Zarco and his team created and filmed this documentary in reaction to the closing of so many Huarache workshops in Tacambaro during his life, with the loss of local identity and economic self sufficiency caused by the growth of modern long range distribution and mass produ ..read more
