Auberge Resorts Collection has teamed up with AMANU, a sustainable custom sandal brand founded by celebrity stylist Anita Patrickson.
Debuting first at Esperanza and Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, the exclusive collaboration will serve as an experiential guest amenity where shoppers can choose from exclusive styles, inspired colors and vegetable-dyed leathers. Located at the properties’ boutiques, AMANU’s skilled artisans will be on hand to guide guests during a private sandal design session. The two Mexico outlets will offer coastal styles with AMANU leathers available for each resort.
Sourced with genuine Italian leather, each pair takes 30 to 45 minutes to create and are all cut to order, emphasizing sustainable shopping. Along with a one-of-a-kind experience, guests will be able to walk away in a brand new, custom-designed pair of sandals.
“When I started AMANU, I wanted to create a place for people to slow down, connect, and consume consciously. What better environment to do this, than while traveling at an Auberge property – to have an experience, to meet someone new, and to bring home a sandal from your journey. The Auberge properties are all about creating unique guest experiences and creating lasting memories. To me, that fits perfectly with everything that we believe at AMANU.”Anita Patrickson, Founder of AMANU
Now available at Esperanza and Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, the special amenity will next debut at other Auberge properties this spring, including Mauna Lani in Hawaii and Malliouhana in Anguilla.
