|Etsy: Your place to buy & sell all things handmade
Meet Daria of LaLaShoes :
I’m an industrial designer (BDes) with a past in the newspaper and several advertising agencies as an art director – also, during that time I worked on various other things such as set design, paper production, children art education, and many more, big and small. I enjoy working with paper, wood, textiles and all kinds of natural materials.
Here you can find healthy and comfortable soft sole shoes for infants, babies & toddlers and room shoes for girls & women. Designing carefully and then producing something with your own hands is the best feeling in the world!
As pediatricians suggest, babies need to walk in soft-soled footwear for better muscle and balance development. I combined this need with my love for designing and sewing & the love for natural materials and healthy living – I started LaLa! Shoes. I just have a few rules – I work only with 100% wool felt* (all Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified) and 100% linen, I want my shoes to be comfortable and healthy and I want them to look good! In other words, I want to put all my efforts in something I believe in, I’ll be proud of and which I enjoy to do.!
(Daria is fluent in Croatian, Italian, English, Slovenian, and reading -loving & learning!- some French )
