"We are Philipp and Lukas, old high-school friends and the founders of CANO.

Our story starts back in 2014 when we came to Mexico to study. Coming from Europe, we were overwhelmed by Mexico’s vibrant culture, warm climate and delicious food. One thing, however, fascinated us the most – the quality and passion behind Mexican handcrafted fashion and footwear. Especially, the Mexican huarache sparked our interest – a handmade leather sandal with great popularity and even greater history and culture."
