About

Hope is found at the intersection of culture and sustainability.

Solana is a mission-driven company, elevating human stories and principles of cultural and environmental sensitivity through sustainable footwear. Born as the result of years spent traveling and immersion into cultures around the globe, Solana footwear represents a desire to inspire others, to create a quality shoe, and to reflect on lessons learned.

As a result of those cultural interactions, Solana strives to contribute to a hopeful future. From sustainability to cultural consciousness, we are leaders of a “new normal” viewed through a global lens and by way of fashionable footwear.

Solana’s commitment to quality and ethical production has created a home in Spain, the motherland of the espadrille. There, Solana shoes are handcrafted using both traditional techniques and modern sustainable methods. High standards and attention to detail are placed above all else.

Solana: Culturally Inspired, Sustainably Made, Fashionably Elevated

A Note from our founder, Yasmine Idriss

“Solana began, as many stories do, with a personal journey. Travel is a catalyst for many and for me it became a central tenet of life. Raised in the Middle East and then leading a life of relocation, schooling, and traveling with family, I visited nearly forty countries by the time I turned twenty. These travels left an indelible mark on me, as wanderlust transformed into a sea of new perspectives, new appreciations of other cultures, and new understandings of the power in not only what makes us different but also the harmony that exists in how we are all alike. This realization was one of many of my own awakenings, along with a growing concern for the future of our planet, which illuminated the way for Solana to be born. I believe there is hope to be found at the intersection of fashion, culture, and sustainability.”
