Our Story

LizzB London is a London based company, owned and run by sisters Nada and Suzie Saidi who create flat espadrilles with adventurous designs full of attitude.

Born out of a desire to create unique espadrilles for their own use and after repeated unsolicited requests from women for their hand embellished espadrilles, the sisters decided to look for a Spanish manufacturer that not only could, but would make espadrilles to their exacting standards and designs.  Perseverance paid off and in 2018 the sisters launched their debut Spring/Summer collection ‘ORIGINS’.

Determined to stay true to the authentic espadrille and support artisanal skills, the bespoke designs are created in London and handcrafted in Spain incorporating traditional methods of production using natural jute and hand sewn construction.  Each shoe is hand embellished which means that no two pairs of are identical.

Tired of hearing ‘it’s just an espadrille’, consideration is given to using high quality materials and hardware that comes from Spain and Italy with a focus on materials that are biodegradable or can be recycled.

Taking inspiration from their surroundings; art, textures, travel, people and their cultural background, the sisters translate their creative passions into risky and bold wearable designs suited to the spontaneity of modern day living for a stylish confident individual.

The brand logo pays homage to the designer’s English mother, a glamorous 60’s fashion model, their Lebanese father, a Manchester based textile merchant and the Manchester worker bee, representative of the workers in the Manchester textile mills and the symbol of their birth city.

'Sophisticated bold style, authenticity and playful design that are uniquely LizzB London'.
