Alberto Sols 5, Elche Parque Empresarial 03203 Elche (Alicante) SPAIN
In the 60s, a humble family of Andalusian peasants migrated to the city of Elche. It was our desire to work in the burgeoning industry of footwear for big names in American footwear. Our family found a home here and settled in the area. In 1981, my grandfather went on a trip to Japan and discovered their tradition of leaving outside dirt outside by wearing slippers around the house. On his return to Spain, he started making some nice slippers at home from one piece of premium leather for his family and friends. I still remember the first time my grandfather gave me a pair of CP Slippers; that feeling of my little foot sliding into those slippers and the marvelous feeling of direct contact with the smooth leather, the comfort was comparable to walking around the house barefoot. That first feeling marked me forever. Years later, after training as a craftsman in leather working, CP Slippers was founded to share with the world the passion that I kept so fondly from my childhood.
