“Wonderfully soft, comfortable mules ethically made in Mexico are sure to please even the pickiest mother-in-law.”
Town and Country Mag
“Strappy little sandals are all well and good for the beach, but city dwellers need something more substantial. Enter Palapa, a sustainably minded, slow-fashion brand that specializes in huaraches.”
“Sustainably made in Mexico, Palapa sandals are unique yet timeless. Case in point: This Palapa Comala: handwoven by local female artisans and made for the woman on the go." 
“The wardrobe staple that keeps on giving.” 
"As much as I always want to wear a simple sandal on vacation, sometimes you need a shoe that’s a touch sturdier than a flimsy flip flop. These handwoven leather shoes are ideal when you want the effortless aesthetic of a summer sandal, but with far more support.” 
The Observer
“A timeless woven slide that can be worn at home as slippers or as slides on a warm day.” 
Harper’s Bazar

Interviews & Essays

“The founder and CEO of Palapa Sandals discusses how her search for “the perfect sandal” turned into a business venture.”
Worth Magazine
“Women should have the government’s support to allow them to lead in the workplace. This means: more conscious maternity leaves, flexible working hours, government support for childcare and meals. Being a female leader shouldn’t mean sacrificing motherhood or your role as a mother. We should be able to govern our passions while protecting our mothering and self space as well.”
Authority Magazine
“We founded PALAPA on the principle that women should not have to sacrifice style for comfort, and are committed to providing the highest quality not only in aesthetics but in the raw material you are stepping your feet on. That is why we have the highest quality leather in the market, one that provides wellness to your feet because it is breathable, antiallergenic and flexible. We have a motto that says: “wear every day, everywhere with everything” and we mean it. We essentially designed a sandal that gets more comfortable the more you wear it."
