The Cocuisas, crafted with sturdy canvas and a sole made of jute or hemp rope, go beyond being just footwear; they become a marvelous expression of tradition and style. These exquisite pieces are essential in the traditional costumes of various regions in America, the Iberian Peninsula, and the south of France. In Colombia, Venezuela, and other Latin American countries, they proudly stand as distinctive elements of traditional attire.

Intertwining with the identity of traditional costumes, Cocuisas take on various forms, whether crafted with fique, fabrics, animal leather, or woven with thread and two needles. The burst of colors in the fabric and the softness of animal skin highlight the cultural richness embraced by each pair of Cocuisas.

The needle and thread weaving, according to traditionalists, reflects the influence of the Wayúu indigenous culture in the La Guajira Peninsula, between Colombia and Venezuela, where they become essential in women's attire. In these countries and many places in Latin America, Cocuisas are lightweight and comfortable footwear, ideal for tropical climates. Let's walk with love and pride, carrying tradition with each step in these authentic Cocuisas, designed for daily life and beach moments during the radiant seasons of spring and summer!
