MARTIN ZACHAR – CEO OLIVIA SHOES
" I want to make shoes that will bring joy. "
Most of you just discovered OLIVIA SHOES but at the first sight you cannot tell who stands behind our brand or what kind of shoes do we sell and that´s what we want to change. So, take a seat, close your eyes and… Just kidding, enjoy our storytelling :)
This story has begun a long time ago in the heart of the Europe – Slovakia. Once upon a time there was a brave man Martin Zachar whose world has been all about football. Until one day. As you might guess he decided to start his very own business in the shoe industry. First there was only a little store in a small town filled with Italian shoes. Everything has changed when the main decision became to invest into the declining shoe factory. At that moment OLIVIA SHOES was born.
During the last few years from all our shoes the most significant became SNEAKERS. We design new models and properly choose the best of them to make sure our Olivia Ladies will have enough options every season. There are more things we should mention. Our sneakers are made from high quality leather, and they are very comfortable. We love the exclusive designs, shiny details and that makes our shoes different. Don´t believe us? Check new collection with the touch of our spirit.
Matchy-matchy represents the idea to make two different products from the same material. We love to have just perfect match when it comes to the handbags and shoes. Don´t you? You are just one click away from that.
OLIVIA SHOES & GROSSO
The OLIVIA SHOES collection goes side by side with our sister company GROSSO. Or brother´s company because Grosso has been brought to life by Martin´s brother Marián Zachar. Thanks bro :-) Grosso handbags are a little bit more conservative and elegant than Olivia´s. Besides the handbags you can also find the nice collection of wallets. Although the focus customers of these two brands is a little bit different, the common vision of both brands is to bring you the quality product you´ll wear with joy.
HOW WE MAKE OUR SHOES
" OLIVIA SHOES – happy to wear. "
Do you want to know how the OLIVIA shoe is made? Every year we carefully look at the most fashionable trends for all seasons. We like to work with leather, but we think of those who prefer other materials, too.
Everything starts with an idea of the perfect shoe. Shapes, colors, decoration. All that must be visualized. So, we make a graphic design. Sometimes the inspiration comes from the customer, sometimes from fashion events. Just imagine yourself in the shoe store looking for the right ones. If only they were in other color, just a little bit higher, made from other material and so on. Been there :-)
The main added value / advantage of our company is flexibility. We can listen to the customer´s wishes and consider it when designing a shoe.
We love the leather
Leather shoes has always played important role in the fashion industry. We could describe the whole shoemaking manual now, but we won´t :-) What matters is that our shoemakers cut the fine leather and sew the upper part precisely. At the finishing there´s a quality check.
Eventually at the end of the manufacture our very own OL symbol is placed on the brand-new shoes. Ready to go!
Most of the shoes we make on demand. Yes, it takes time, and you must wait a little longer. But right after the package is delivered at your hands, we believe you will find out it´s full of joy!
