Josefinas' story

One day a woman had a dream, others joined her and Josefinas was born. Josefinas is a Portuguese brand born from a dream. In a country in crisis, where there was little room for dreams, creating handmade shoes had a new name: Josefinas. In Portugal, there is something that has never died: the savoir-faire of craftsmen and the passion for an idea. 'Never give up' has always defined Josefinas’ path. The name Josefinas was born in honor of Filipa Júlio’s grandmother, the brand's founder. Grandma Josefina always made Filipa’s life a special adventure, especially when she took her to ballet class. We hope that Josefinas’ story inspires the path of many other women straight to the realization of their dreams just as it inspires us daily!
