Real caseLa Manual Inventora

"Entrepreneurs must be involved in body and soul and then enjoy it."

La Manual Inventora is the union of four creative and restless minds. Joan Carles Tasies is the driving force behind this espadrille company that goes far beyond design. It is an innovative project that has gone a step further than its competitors.

Espadrilles that captivate the whole world

Joan Carles Tasies united the aspirations of four people, some from Manual Alpargatera and others from a publishing company specialised in stories for emotional education. From this emerged La Manual Inventora, a company with brands such as Barcemola, which have captivated the locals and foreign visitors of Barcelona through its unique designs of espadrilles.

The case in numbers

The vision of Joan Carles Tasies is that an entrepreneur should not be deluded but must be enthusiastic and believe in their project. You have to feel it, you have to live it and you have to put your body and soul into it.

In this process, the MicroBank microcredit helped him to purchase a printer that creates the prototypes. In this way, he did not depend on others to create his designs.
