This is the Palmira from Pedro Garcia. The company is family owned and was started in 1925 by the first Pedro Garcia in Elda, Alicante, Spain who started out by making children shoes and then three years later moving on to men’s footwear. In 1945 the second Pedro took over and expanded the company by including women’s footwear and opening a new factory in 1965. Three years later the Pedro Garcia line was being exported to the top fashion markets and was appearing in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar etc. Today, the third Pedro and his sister Mila are being groomed to take over the company with Pedro helping with the artistic direction of the company and Mila running operations.
