Established in 2021, after a false start in 2019 and the subsequent pandemic, Wrapton footwear was finally realized from Reine's inspiration of aesthetic, color, and texture, and Michael’s expertise in footwear design and production. Together they created elevated Euro-comfort, luxurious eco-friendly leather shoes, made in the hills of Portugal.
Today, Wrapton shares a beautiful creative space with BijouRocks, located in the arts district of Solana Beach, California. The shop and showroom showcases the latest collections, serves as a space for private events and a gallery for fine art exhibits.
REINE & MICHAEL KRIEF
CO-FOUNDERS & DESIGNERS
Raised in Montreal, Canada, both Reine & Michael have built independent careers in fashion and footwear. Reine studied and worked extensively in the fashion industry and Michael, a second generation expert in footwear design and production, is also a sought-after working artist. Eventually, together they worked and created many collections for several brands and private labels.
“I am constantly learning and evolving - art is the manifestation.” - Michael Krief
