Diplomatic

What we think

We love that Diplomatic puts its own twist on some of our favourite styles, making sure they provide "barefoot" comfort and are skillfully handcrafted. The Cretas become our shadow in the summer - from the beach to the bar, they follow us everywhere!

QUALITY IN THE MAKING

The process

Celebrating Spain's sunny lifestyle and generational repute in leather-making, Diplomatic has a little bit of everything for everyone. Based in Madrid, the brand prioritises local manufacture while sourcing its products from a trusted network of family-run, traditional manufactories in Europe.
