The colours of the mediterranean

Colors of the mediterranean, the inspiration for Ball Pagès espadrilles

They say that we all perceive colours differently that they have the ability to transform our experiences just as much as our memories of smells and sounds, and that, combined perfectly, can create truly satisfactory harmonies for our eyes.

Sometimes you need to stop for a second, just to contemplate your surroundings, and what better moment than when we are lazing on a beach towel or swimming in the sea off one of the Mediterranean beaches?


The Mediterranean as inspiration

No matter the beach, the Mediterranean paints its entire coast in characteristic colours which inspires anybody who lays eyes on it. It is a perfect mixture of tradition, nature, tones and freedom.

Without a doubt, the Mediterranean Sea is one the greatest sources of inspiration for Ball Pagès. We try to reflect all that we perceive through our savoir faire; one of our great strengths is our ability to transfer those hues directly from the scenery to our espadrilles.
