“The founder and CEO of Palapa Sandals discusses how her search for “the perfect sandal” turned into a business venture.”
“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.”
“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."
