In a world where everything encourages us to run and compete, we’re fans of the good path. That path, where the manual processes and good finishes are the stars. Each shoe is a jigsaw puzzle of many pieces which are cut, sewn and put together with enormous precision.

We’re conscious of the fact that the manufacture of one of our shoes is a complex dance, where numerous people take part on a day-to-day basis to create El Naturalista family. In this video you can see some of the processes involved in footwear manufacture.

Our aim is to create comfortable quality footwear which can be used for years without wear and tear. Durability for us is the most efficient form of sustainability. We only manufacture in our factories, thereby allowing us to control the production chain from beginning to end. To manufacture one of our shoes is complex process involving over 60 people. The result is we have shoes inspired by nature for committed people, because to our way of thinking everything has its origin in nature. Each line of our collections has a natural inspiration which is the starting point of the creative process.

who made my clothes

Each person and their rights are important to us, which is why we created the Code of Conduct that defines our strategy of Corporate Responsibility. This code reflects all the rights of our workers and company starting bases, while respecting Human Rights at all times.

Each and every one of our workers is essential since they are the backbone of El Naturalista, and now you can come meet them thanks to the #whomademyclothes campaign of Fashion Revolution.

And all that’s left is to thank each and every one for telling us their story and sharing it with you all. Meet them!! And should you still have queries or wish to learn other aspects of El Naturalista and those of us who work for the brand, please use the Social Networks to contact us.

Thank you once again!








We all know that a great many companies from developed countries produce the majority of their products in underdeveloped countries. In many cases this means exploitation and inequality. Out of almost 75 million people working in the textile industry, approximately 80% are women working in bad conditions in exchange for a very low wage.

Fashion Revolution, which is a global movement for a more sustainable textile industry, came about in 2013 to make known the stories behind the people who make clothes. It believes in and fights to radically change the way clothes are obtained so they are made safely, cleanly and fairly.

To achieve responsible sustainable fashion it must first be transparent.

To do so, the constant aim is to unify all the distributors, customers and companies which share this philosophy to achieve precisely that, i.e. transparency.

fashion revolution


Fashion Revolution Week event from 24th to 30th April, coincides with the date the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed, that is, 24th April 2013, killing around 1130 people, most of whom worked in textile factories.

who made my clothes

This week centres on the campaign #whomademyclothes?, designed to encourage consumers to ask brands and retailers about the people who make the clothes they wear, and to demand greater transparency in their production processes. At the same time, we the companies undertake to answer all the questions with words and pictures.

We will show you part of our production processes and show the faces of all those real people who make El Naturalista possible.


Our brand is based on 3 pillars: product, planet, and people. Taking care of people is top priority for us, therefore, we wish to be transparent. We will show you the stories which make up our company day to day.

We are working so all our processes will be sustainable and not harm our workers’ health. To this end, we make all our products on our own premises, always choosing high quality raw materials and fostering manufacturing processes which combine attention to detail and innovation.

Furthermore, we look after the working environment, whereby our production centres develop initiatives to improve our sustainability.

– 60.93% electricity savings by replacing fluorescent bulbs with LED.

– Green energy consumption.

– Reuse of fluvial waters for production.

– Efficient waste management.

– Efficient energy use: lighting control thanks to sensors, programming and making use of sunlight. Change to low consumption lighting. Ventilated façade and 21ºC acclimatization.

– Development of greenhouse effect gas reduction initiatives: environment ISO.

– Rationalization of water use thanks to replacement of lawn with shredded rubber flooring on our premises.

– Origin of raw materials and products: the material is audited and our technicians visit the suppliers, who are required to meet European regulations and comply with REACH.

At El Naturalista we undertake to respect and foster Human Rights. So to uphold the principles governing our commitment to Corporate Responsibility we are sharing our Code of Conduct, which affects all activities involving people, and followed in our manufacturing workshops, logistics, offices and distribution.

Be bang up-to-date and know the latest trends is an absolute must for any modern woman wanting to wear the latest fashion combined with the best and most nouvelle accessories.

This is why we’ve come with a footwear fashion section that’ll leave nobody indifferent this spring, namely Clogs!! The ideal accessory for your looks with the onset of warm weather.

Although this footwear was originally used in the field, mining, farms; and typically in rural areas; however, its use has evolved in time to become the kind of footwear we women use in our daily lives. The fact is, apart from flattering and stylizing our ankles, clogs are also extremely versatile not to mention comfortable; which is essential and not to be overlooked. Why wear something which makes us uncomfortable, causes blisters/ friction sores or simply makes walking uncomfortable. We can’t afford to buy shoes we’re not going to be able to wear.

How to combine clogs

clog trends

Already got your clogs, but don’t how to combine them? No worries, here are some straightforward suggestions so you can get the very best out of them.

  • Ideal for your evening looks at those summer parties.
  • If the occasion requires you to don a skirt or mini-dress, then clogs are your ideal companion.
  • A long working-day? Then wear them with your tight-fit drainpipes. An informal casual look topped off with comfortable clogs that’ll make your working day easier to bear.
  • Jumpsuits. Wear a jumpsuit in one of this spring’s trendy colors and combine with a pair of clogs.
  • If it’s a hot muggy day and you fancy a stroll through the city or sipping a drink on an outdoor terrace, brighten yourself up with a sheer filmy blouse that matches your clogs.
  • Got a date and you don’t fancy wearing jeans or mini-skirt? Then now is the time to pull your long skirts or dresses out of the closet. If your clogs have got high-heels and a platform then they’ll look perfect just peeping out under your long floor-length dress.

If you’re more easy-going and the Bo-Ho or hippy style fashion is what catches your eye, then clogs are your ideal complement for combining with folksy style looks, a great style for accompanying this warm weather given its colors and textures.

Lose yourself in the color and cheer of spring and tell us about your favorite looks to combine with this footwear style!

The never-ending debate, and so… Which is best?

One pair on your feet and another in your purse. Does that ring a bell? In fact, high-heels have an incredible power of attraction on all women. We all find them painful, yet we’re all crazily drawn to them, and day after day, we make the same delightful mistake.

Every year, new collections show us impossible lines and staggering high heels. We’re always drawn to risk, yet… Can we use this kind of shoe in our day-to-day?

It seems designers have taken the hint and their latest collections include today’s very trendy and famous ‘Sporty style’ Espadrilles, slippers, trainers, pumps, etc. Does comfort really have to be at odds with style? More and more celebrities joining this trend, and show us with their street styles that style is inherent in you; it just depends on how you wear it.

In fact, the large fashion houses are already adapting the majority of their heels to 2 different heights, in other words, 1 design 2 options. This means the most daring can enjoying sporting 12 cm heels, whilst those of us who can’t stand this painful pleasure have the option of buying the same shoe but with a 7 cm heel.

high heels

The way we dress defines our personality which in turn generates our attitude to life. Just imagine this situation – you’re at the most chic restaurant in town when suddenly a girl dressed in yellow enters, confident of drawing the attention of all the diners one way or another. Now repeat this situation mentally but using black instead of yellow. Would you pay that girl the same attention?

So now let’s use the same example but with shoes this time. Now it’s you entering a restaurant wearing staggering 10 cm heels, and then later repeat the experiment wearing flats. Do you think the reactions would be the same to them?

flats shoes

Are we just talking about height or is there really something else?

It goes without saying high-heels stylize your figure, but, have you any idea what other benefits they have?

– You get those extra centimeters we all want.

– They dress you up letting you create more sober elegant looks.

– They make you stand up straighter when you walk

– They improve the pelvic floor muscles.

heel shoes

Mind you it’s not all good news, as high-heels have a lot of enemies which put them down.

According to experts wearing a shoe with a 10 cm heel or more forces 90% of your body weight to be supported on this foot area, which is not physically prepared to support this pressure. Other more frequent problems are: chafing, blistering, and sprains of varying degrees.

Furthermore, constant use of high-heels can lead to foot malformations, the majority on the inner part and toes. You just need to look at models’ feet to realize that. Wearing high-heels on a daily basis damages their toes. Furthermore, there are people with bad circulation, so these could cause greater onset of varicose veins.

Where’s the trick?

Ideally it would be great to enjoy shoes period whether they’re high heels or flats without having to think about if you can interchange them easily or not. This is why we recommend you go for quality materials, removable inner soles and comfortable widths which will give you the comfort you need so you can forget about your feet all day.


There are a world of assorted types of high heeled shoes, including pumps, platforms, sandals, wedges and high heeled boots for ladies… there is also the increasing trend for men to now wear heels. This indicates just how many styles today’s shoe fashion embraces. Heels don’t have to be high to be in fashion and acceptable…so here are a few ideas for choosing the right pair of high heeled shoes:

Choose the right heel and shoe shape four your legs….If legs are too thick, heels with a pointed toe may seem much smaller and many make your feet look out proportion with the rest of the body. Find a heel that makes the legs look in proportion with the shoes. Many people make their legs appear leaner by choosing a wider design in heeled shoes. Heels that are too sturdy may make your legs look sturdy also.

Heel Height Test

• Be seated

• Lift one leg in the air, straight your lega the height of your knee. Keep this foot flat!

• Now measure the length from your knee to heel.

• Now relax your foot and measure the distance from your knee to heel again.

• The number distance is your ideal heel height!

Must likely your favourite pair of pumps coincides with the height. Just hints that your body usually knows what’s bests for you and lets know. Now, if you choose to ignore your body, there are repercussions.

TO BE CLEAR: the most harm that come from wearing heels result from constant log.term wearing high heels. Sometimes ladies, we just have to say no to those beautiful pumps and bring out the not sexy flats. You can always bedazzle them!

The lasting effects are most likely shown in the knees, back, and course the feet. Shoes two inches or higher force the body forward, turning walking into an awkard chore. It also forces the foot downwards restricting its ability to flex and absorb the shock of walking on cement grounds with your weight forced on each step. Leaving those sensitive areas like the knees and hip joints to pick up the slack, which can aggravate and sometimes even cause arthitis.

If you are trying to look stylish or to complement ano outfit, nothing beats a great pair of high heels. Unfortunately, while they have a way of making the legs look longer, the elegant shoes can sometimes be very uncomfortable. When you decide to buy high heels, comfort is a very important consideration and you need to look for those you will actually enjoy wearing. If like many women, you avoid wearing high shoes because you believe that your feet will hurt, the following tips can help you.

heel shoes


One thing you need to realize is that you can get comfortable heels. If you have seen a girl in high heel boots and you are wondering how she manages to stay sane, the secret is that the boots are actually quite comfortable. Being well informed will help you to make the best decision when shopping. Admittedly, it is not always easy to find the perfect pair but when you do, it is an investiment worth making. Knowing what to look for will help you to choose the best pair.


One thing that you need to consider is the height of the heels. Pay keen attention to the height when choosing heels. Determine whether you want to wear them only on special occasions or you want to wear them often. This will help you to choose the height that is suitable for your needs. you can handle a very high heel when you only wear the shoes occasionally, but for more frequent wear, consider a lower heel. you also need to decide how far you need to walk in the shoes.

heel shoes


You should consider going for thicker heels especially if you are not used to wearing such shoes. Thick sturdy heels tend to be more comfortable than super-thin high stilettos. You can start out with thick heels before you move on to the thin ones. If you need to rush from place to place or you are often on your feet for hours, the thick heels are the best option. you can also choose a thick wedge that offers great support and comfort. In-built platforms allow you to benefit from extra height and comfort.

Cushioning is an important element to look for when looking for comfortable high heels. Make sure that you buy those that fit well and have adequate cushioning. You can also use inserts to get the much-needed extra cushioning. Look for stores that stock a range of designs to get the best pair of heels.



Responsible tourism means all tourism directly dependent on the use of natural life e.g. wildlife and landscape. Nature based tourism includes eco-tourism and mass tourism.

Uncontrolled mass tourism continues to contribute to the degradation of natural and cultural significance (commercialization of Culture) thus leading or causing loss of biological and cultural biodiversity, and important sources of income. Nature based tourism offers a way of financing unique ecosystems preservation. This provides an opportunity for the community living near the protected areas to benefit economically. E.g. employment opportunity. But Nature based tourism and travel, while sustaining eco-system also degrades them. Much nature based tourism falls short of social responsability to the local community.


Sustainable tourism

Sustainable tourism is developed and managed in such a way that all tourism activities will focus on a heritage resource, natural and cultural which con be continued imminently and every effort is made to maintain the resource to perpetuity.

According to Hector Ceballos-Lascurian (1983) ecotourism means “the tourism that involves travelling to relatively undisturbed natural area which can be continued imminently and enjoying the scenery and its wild plants and animals as well as cultural features found there.”

Eco-tourism embraces four basic elements:

· The natural enviroment as the primary attraction and the cultural environment playing a secondary role.

· The sustainable use of the ecological and cultural environment.

· Focus on education and the interpretation of the resource.

· Provision of the benefit to the host community.

Tourism is about people and places where one group of people leave, visit and pass through places, the people who make the trip possible and the people encountered in the tour, it involves travelers, host communities and goverments.

Tourism demands unspoiled environment in which to operate. It is essential that tour operation should be developed and manged in such a way that is to protect the natural assets. We subscribe to the fact that the estent to which tourism is developed, planned and controlled in a orderly and coordianted manner will affect the long-term quality of the tourism product and subsequently the success of the hospitality Industry. While tourism can be catalyst for development, it is important for the government agencies to plan and develop tourism carefully so that the benefit can be optimized without creating social and environmental problems.

Low-impact forms of tourism counteracts the effects of mass tourism that poses a number of challenges on the resource base i.e. environment, society and economy. Low-impact forms of tourism create a balance between environment quality and resource utilization. This is mainly aimed at empowering local communities in managing their natural resources. That is, creating an incentive to conserve the biological resource in the environment by allowing the beneficial effects from tourism filter down to the individual families and households.

Alternative tourism is seen as forms of tourism that are consistent with natural social and community values and which allows both the host and the guest to enjoy positive and worthwhile interaction and shared experience, which is also known variously as ecotourism, nature tourism, sustainable tourism, environmentally friendly, environmentally sensitive, ecological compatible ecologically sound or Green and eco-tour such as Walking tours, birds Safari, Camel Safaris Guided nature walks, horse riding safaris, bicycle tours, home and farm stays, youth tourism.

Better destiantions

In the tourism industry, the destination is perhaps one of the most important elements. The destiantion region represents the reason for tourism and the tourism attraction at the destination generates the visit. Tourism product is consumed where it is produced (destiantion). Hence the destiantion comes under considerable pressure from high levels of demand focused both in time and at specific sites. For example, the warm East Africa, indian Ocean coastal beaches during the northern hemisphere winter.


Tourism pressures can lead to alteration of the tourism resource, and as tourist demand continues to rise, so have many destinations around the world succumbed to environmental degradation. The impact that some form of tourism development has on the environment has raised concern among environmentalist and other constituents. Therefore professional management and planning of destiantion are critical if tourism is to contribute to their conservation and to be perceived as an acceptable industry in a world whose survival is threatened.

Many destinations marketed as responsible tourism do not consider the local community’s development, economic, social welfare and human rights. Indeed, a majority of them care less about resource as long as it brings the “green bill”. There must be concern with staff and tourist education i.e. the expected visitors behavior. Thus in this, nature-based tourism is formulated as sustainable development. The concept of set principles, Ties 1991 defined it as responsible travel to natural areas that conserve the enviroment and sustains the well-being of the local people.

Islas Mauricio

It is now fashionable to look at tourism development in the context of “sustainability”, “alternative tourism”, “green tourism” all of which have a particular meaning to different people. But majority of this are just eco-labels or marketing and PR slongs. Sustainable tourism is that which meets the needs of present without compromising tha ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
