What you'll do

Visit an Ecuadorian shoe factory with more than 50 years of expertise in the market. A family legacy that has been passed down for three generations, seeks to introduce you to the process of making leather and vegan leather footwear. You will be able to learn about the materials that are used and their origin as well as observe first-hand how the production process of your own personalized shoe will be.

The session will begin with a visit to our plant. Here you will learn a little about the history of our brand L Gilbert. Then we will start with the production process starting with the review of the different materials that can be used to make footwear. You will learn about its durability composition and how to know when a product is leather or synthetic among other things. Then you will see the process from cutting to completion where you can interact with the shoemakers who have been with us from the beginning.

We offer that for an additional value you can create your own shoes, choosing from our wide range of models to the materials you want to use and at the end of the tour you can take home personalized Gilbert
