Spain is a country steeped in tradition, but you don't have to get on a plane to sample its unique culture. A wide range of online experiences from airbnb will whisk you away as you explore the movement and rhythm of flamenco dance from your living room, fill your kitchen with the smells and tastes of tortilla, and design your own woven sandals from your dining room table.

Design Your Espadrilles, We'll Make Them

  • 1.5 hours
  • From $67/person

"We will meet virtually at one of our workshops, where you can see the finished espadrilles and the materials. First, we will introduce you to the story of espadrilles and the materials needed for their construction. You will learn about this beautiful tradition, and how this shoe passed from being built by and for humble people to be one of the most trendy styles of shoes.

Then every guest will choose the color and size of the base, the laces, the threads, and the type of stitching. Once ready, we will stitch you your own traditional espadrilles, and then teach you the different ways to lace them up.

Finally, we will ship your creation to your home with free worldwide FedEx shipping."

Savor Spain from the Comfort of Home
