Sandals first appeared in Greece in the 4th century BC. and were made of leather and straps which were firmly tied around the foot. The women, in particular, wore these sandals, which they spent several hours at home. “
According to Greek mythology, sandals were sometimes given magical properties. From Mercury, the winged god of Olympus, we fly directly to Corfu in 1984, during which Giannis Simatis, founder of SRL, decided to start his own business, with purely leather products, displaying the genuine, Greek taste in handmade construction.
