Pons Avarcas are a family owned business located in Ciutadella and specialised in artisan Menorcan avarcas since 1945. The current manufacturers are the third generation of the Pons family that have proudly continued the family tradition. Pons avarcas are well known for being handcrafted in workshops where every last detail is given the utmost attention: from the raw materials, sourced 100% from Spain, used to their design and finishing, to achieve a product of the highest quality.
Look always for the Avarca de Menorca Logo. Nowdays, due to its popularity, some manufacturers have come up with many fake imitations that are far from the authentic, artisan and top quality measures and materials used in the genuine avarcas. The local government (Consell Insular) and the Shoemaker Association of Menorca (Associació de fabricants del Calçat de Menorca), in order to protect the traditional avarcas handcrafted in the island, have developed the sign "Product of Menorca" that ensures the highest quality standards and the authenticity of the avarcas sandal while preserving and protecting the artisans and tradition of the island.
