Manuel Barcelo

FOUNDED IN 1960 BY MANOLO BARCELÓ, COSI-COSI FOOTWEAR S.L. IS SITUATED IN ELCHE - A MAJOR MANUFACTURING CENTRE JUST OUTSIDE ALICANTE IN SOUTHERN SPAIN.THE STORY OF THE BARCELÓ FAMILY GOES BACK TO 1960 WHEN MANOLO, A MASTER CRAFTSMAN IN ARTISAN ROPEWORK AND WEAVING, WORKED TO HONE HIS CREATIVE TALENT. DRIVEN BY A SENSE OF PERFECTION, HE REFINED HIS PRODUCTION OF ESPADRILLES AND ROPE-SOLED WEDGES, GAINING A POSITION AS CONTRACT MANUFACTURER FOR THE MOST ACCLAIMED INTERNATIONAL FASHION HOUSES.MANUEL MARTINEZ, MANOLO'S SON, BREATHED IN THE AIR OF THE ELCHE PRODUCTION FACILITIES. AFTER A STINT DESIGNING FOR OTHERS, MANOLO DECIDED TO TRY HIS HAND AT HIS OWN LINE. AND SO IT WAS THAT FIVE YEARS AGO, THE FOLLOWING CREATIONS CAME ON THE SCENE: PALOMA BARCELÓ.
