You're also supporting our UK family that brings your Avarcas to the UK. We reinvest the money to bring more models to you the following year.


All your avarcas come with the guaranteed "Avarca de Menorca" label. 


El Consell Insular de Menorca, in collaboration with the Footwear Manufacturers Association of Menorca, has created this guaranteed "Avarca de Menorca" brand to ensure the quality and authenticity of the product,  materials, the manufacturing process and geographical origin.
