HOUSE OF CINNAMON
House of Cinnamon shoes are made in South Africa by a talented team of 6 artisans working under an amazingly talented cobbler who trained in Europe. House of Cinnamon only uses the finest leather, suede, linen and other natural fabrics to make their luxury shoes which are produced in very limited quantities.
Founder Frances Edwards says: “Our ranges are limited. You will, therefore, be one of a handful of people wearing a particular design. And then there are our “limited editions” of which we make only one pair in each size.”
The House of Cinnamon bags are equally exclusive and made at a different facility also based in Cape Town. This factory, established in 1988, supports a further 30 local artisans.
Frances has demonstrated that South African artisans can produce affordable luxury shoes and handbags that are as desirable as their international contemporaries. The added benefit to South Africans is that the price point is more attractive to us and we get to support and stimulate local industry.
House of Cinnamon has honed a distinctive collection of classic designs, perennial favourites and key products crafted with care and attention to detail. These have come to define the brand and will continue to offer products that reflect this ethos.
We are extremely proud and happy to have House of Cinnamon onboard with Equilibrio. Affordable luxury local items that last are the kind of fashion we love. We seek to find and promote local, slow fashion that can be worn for a lifetime.
