Our Story

Mahonitas are the first avarcas menorquinas of their kind.

The original avarcas menorquinas were born a long time ago in the town of Mahon on the Balearic island of Menorca, but it was only in 2014 that Pedro Caules, the man behind our design, patented the world's first menorquina sandal made entirely of EVA foam.

Pedro Caules, was born and raised on the island of Menorca, where he spent all of his professional life as a designer of avarcas menorquinas, the traditional Mediterranean sandals.

While the original menorquina sandal is a beloved and stylish staple of Spanish summers, it is made of leather and therefore heavy and not resistant to water. Breaking with tradition, Pedro patented the first water resistant, ultra-light, ergonomic, floating, machine washable, menorquina sandal.

mahonitas is the result of the cooperation between the brilliant mind of Pedro and the strong passion of a team of fashion lovers and professionals that chose Ibiza and the balearic Islands as their home.

Inspired by the breathtaking mediterranean landscape and always in search of the latest innovations and fashion trends, we have developed our first style: Mahon, paying homage to where all started.
