Respoke Nantucket Grand Opening!

After great anticipation, Respoke Nantucket will open Friday, May 21, 2021 at 41 Straight Wharf!

Respoke repurposes iconic designer silk into a curated collection of one-of-a-kind products featuring hand-crafted Spanish made espadrilles. Respoke was founded by best-selling author Michael Tonello, whose memoir, Bringing Home the Birkin, recounts the highlights of his years as a reseller of all things Hermès. His love affair with espadrilles began shortly after he settled in Barcelona and it didn’t take long for him to reimagine his favorite new footwear crafted with luxurious silk rather than utilitarian cotton twill.

The vision comes to life in the La Rioja region of Spain where craftspeople in mountain villages continue the centuries old tradition of making espadrilles by hand. Join us for a fresh new perspective on footwear, ready to wear, and accessories.
