Minna Parikka partners with family-run shoemakers in the Alicante region, where superb craftsmanship is passed on from one generation to the next. All Minna Parikka shoes are made in two factories in Spain.
These skilful artisans create magic through years of experience. To ensure impeccable quality, our production and design teams monitor the complete production process in both Finland and Spain.
The Art of Shoe Design
Each pair of Minna Parikka shoes requires 50 different components, 120 steps and 14 hours of challenging and intricate work to reach perfection. Shoe crafting is an art form of itself, creating possibilities for the wearer to step out in comfort, with confidence and a sense of adventure.
Great design doesn’t age: Materials designed for comfort and durability are the foundation of Minna Parikka shoes. When taken care of properly, high quality leather moulds to form and stays beautiful over time. Prolonging the life of a quality product is an effective way of reducing its carbon footprint.
After years of experimenting and learning, we are continuously finding new ways to become more innovative and sustainable. It is extremely important to us that our raw materials are sourced as by-products of food production. The other components used in the shoes come from Spanish and Italian subcontractors.
It is important to us that our manufacturers work sustainably and ethically. We want to create products that will bring you joy for a long time, while having the lowest possible impact on the environment. Our partnerships are loyal and honest, supported by certificates of production and quality.
Minna Parikka’s first vegan collection was launched in the spring 2020. These vegan styles are made entirely from 100% animal free materials.
