Let's get in touch!


CANO is committed to preserving traditional craftsmanship in a modern world. Together with our artisans, we are setting new standards of collaboration, fairness and transparency in the fashion industry. Of course, we try to do all of this as sustainably as possible.

CANO’s shoe line includes traditional huaraches, sandals, mules, and boots. All products are made out of vegetable-tanned leather and are handcrafted in Mexico. Furthermore, CANO also has a small handmade jewelry and crafts collection. The whole manufacturing process takes place in Mexico to ensure the greatest impact on the local community and the lowest impact on the environment. The weaving technique of the huaraches has its roots in the Aztec culture and has since been inherited and improved from generation to generation. The Mexican artisans behind the huarache dedicate their lives to keep the century-old tradition alive.
