Luis and Kathe here writing a post, as we just realised we have not done it so since Covid hit two years ago.
As you all know, we have been super busy, together with you, having a great time with the experience, both online and onsite. We have been covering it all via Instagram, so it is not like we disappeared, but we just thought about posting now!
The Espadrilles Experience has become vital in our daily routines, it has become the soul of the brand, and it is for sure what we most enjoy, sharing time with you all.
As of today, we have hosted, literally, 1.462 sessions since we started with the experience. We have had people from more than 60 countries, if not more… most of them are active on our Instagram, which exploded during the last year or so (www.instagram.com/barcelonahandmade) and it has become our main point of interaction with all those guests from outside Barcelona.
We have had all the big companies celebrating their Christmas parties and team building events with us. Twitter, Pinterest, Microsoft, Google, Instagram, Amazon, etc. We even created a special website for companies to learn about the experience and to book it (www.espadrillesexperience.com)
What a ride! The thing we are most proud of? We can now say that we have friends in all those countries and companies, and we are sure that as Barcelona opens up for tourism, we are going to have them visiting daily! So looking forward to that, hopefully this summer!
What lies ahead then?
Well, we are super energised by this success and we are working now in several projects at the same time:
- Launching this experience on Amazon Explore.
- Open franchises with our concept in Spain, United Arab Emirates and hopefully USA too!
- Creating a whole new collection of our espadrilles for this summer 2022.
- Growing our team to more than 50 people now.
Want to know more? As always, we are happy to get in touch directly, either on Instagram or WhatsApp. It is literally us, Luis and Kathe, writing this and talking to you, our dear guests at the experience.
THANK YOU, REALLY.
