Huma Blanco is a footwear brand, designed and handmade in Lima, Peru. The line was born of an appreciation for the simple luxury of Peruvian hides and textiles, along with a goal to sustain long-term jobs for shoemakers in its designer's home country. The raw beauty of these Peruvian materials - such as suede, alpaca and calf hair - inspires the designer, Adriana Crocco. Crocco works with them using natural dyes, or leaving them in their pure form. The line fuses classic silhouettes with interesting construction and unexpected textures.
Huma Blanco is created by Adriana Crocco, a third-generation shoemaker and designer based in Lima. Her Peruvian and Italian shoemaking heritages have led Adriana to an appreciation for quality of materials and construction.
