ESSKA's founder and designer; Souraya Karami, originally trained and worked as an architect before studying footwear design at the renowned London College of Fashion.
Souraya’s aim was to make feminine shoes that were comfortable and affordable. “I believe in inner beauty and the concept of feeling good” says Souraya, “it’s the harmony with oneself that makes one look good” Esska’s design aesthetic is refined and modern, seamlessly blending clean lines, layered materials and bold colours.
The brand speaks to women who want original, comfortable and timeless footwear, taking them from season to season, enhancing their individual style.
ESSKA's shoes are designed in London and made in a small artisan factory in Portugal where craftsmen lovingly create the brand’s vision and incorporate the key product elements - breathable leather uppers & linings, a specially developed padded insole, and a non-slip flexible rubber outsole.
Since launching in 2006, ESSKA's distinctive footwear has gained a loyal following and today the brand is sold in over 200 boutiques & retailers globally.
