Welcome to The Journal at Fonfrège.com

We won’t lie: it’s been a major challenge to relaunch after COVID-19 pretty much delayed everything.

First things first: we are so grateful for your patience as we struggled to relaunch. We are especially glad to say that all of our craftspeople in Italy, France, and beyond are safe and healthy. We are also thrilled to share with you our new website and expanded collection of goods. 

Discover these new departments: our curated collections of vintage jewelry, home décor, and fine art, including work by the brilliant artist Romy Vargas. We have several limited edition prints for sale exclusively on fonfrege.com. 

 By now you’ve no doubt heard about our espadrilles.  It’s the only shoe we wear in summer, and we’re proud to have found the best craftspeople in France to make them for us by hand, in the traditional style.

The town of Mauléon is home to the original espadrilles. Make sure you pick up a few pairs in any one of the fabulous colours we offer. Shop the collection here. 

Meanwhile, we’re dreaming of daiquiris. Big ones. While many of us are staying put until it’s safe to travel, check out our team’s tantalizing report from Cuba (don’t worry – they went before the pandemic hit.) Read their story here. 

 Lastly, don’t forget to check out The Collector’s Library, where you’ll find first-edition monographs of the world’s most celebrated photographers and artists, plus important editions of literary fiction. 


It’s a lot to take in so pour yourself a Pastis and take a summer holiday with Fonfrège!
