Edel Van Riet is a true adventurer. From a young age, he craved for great adventures. One day, he left on a journey to explore Latin America on his own. He worked as a volunteer in Guatemala, guided hikes to volcanoes in Nicaragua, traveled through the Mexican jungle and sailed the Caribbean Sea to Colombia. A journey to remember…
One encounter would leave a deep impression on him. Whilst trekking through the high mountains of Mexico, Edel got to know a very special indigenous tribe. They called themselves the Rarámuri, which literally means ‘those with light feet’. This encounter would become the start of a new adventure.
Rarámuri is founded by Edel.
A small team with big dreams and ambitions. Find out below who’s behind the company.
More than 10.000 sandals sold and 3 charities supported. And we’ve only just begun…
“Inspired by freedom, unity with nature and adventure of the Rarámuri tribe, our mission is not only to share these values , but also to strive for ultimate comfort and durability. Rarámuri is made for free spirits, adventurers and bon vivants who value the people and nature around them.”
We’re not only dedicated to the sandals you wear, but also to the world we all live in. This is what we stand for, what we believe and what we aim to pursue in the future.
