The small-scale factory where the ankle boots, loafers and sandals are made was founded in 1958 in a village between Nimes and Montpellier, and quickly expanded into a specialist in the manufacture of Camargue cowboy boots.
In 2007, this family company, La Botte Gardiane, received the award from the French Ministry of Economics for their workmanship and “Manufacturing Excellence”, and for the fashion house Céline they also made boots.
All shoes are handmade and with the best leather and suede types from France. As much work is done with vegetable tannins; Made of bark of chestnut, oak and rosemary and most colors thus contain no chrome. In addition, it is a 100% French product, which is very rare today.
BOTTINES has the exclusivity for the brand in the Netherlands, and sells the collection through this website and pop-up stores.
The collection is composed by Marjolein and made by La Botte Gardiane. The ankle boots with straps have now become a best-selling classic. Marjolein devised the possibility of exchanging the straps, and making them in different materials.
Since the beginning of 2015, BOTTINES also sells the luxury sneakers of Zespa Aix-en-Provence
