Hello! What a joy to have you here
We dedicate this space to explain everything about us, from our beginnings to today. Discover our trajectory, our production processes, our values… This is how we make quality footwear for the kings and queens of the house!
Our beginnings, Children who are children!
We were born in 1968 in Elche, an area of shoemaking tradition that, together with our entrepreneurial energy, has allowed us to innovate and seek excellence through the union between know-how and creativity.
Garvalín, our first-born brand, comes with a clear objective: to offer the best product for the little ones in the house. Quality becomes our reason for being without losing sight of our essence, making shoes for children who are children.
From our first pair of shoes and until today, the commitment to quality is evidenced in the care of each design, as well as in compliance with international regulations in reference to footwear and respect for the environment in all processes.
The family grows! We carry innovation in our DNA
We have always liked large families that is why, in 1996, aware of the need to create footwear that provides freedom, security and stability throughout the different stages of foot development, we set ourselves a new challenge: innovate using the Latest technology to fully respect the evolution of the foot. Thus, we welcome Biomecanics.
Together with the Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia and endorsed by the Spanish Association of Pediatric Nursing, we are entering our most innovative project. Today Biomecanics is part of our family as one of the most enriching experiences as shoe manufacturers.
Biomecanics leads the baby footwear market and has been awarded the Most Innovative Brand Award at the MIA Awards. Don't you know us?Discover Biomecanics
Agatha Ruíz de la Prada
In 2001, we took another step forward and started a very special collaboration with the designer Agatha Ruíz de la Prada to fill the steps of our girls with fantasy. A union still in force that season after season brings light and joy to any shop window. If you want to know where to find the funniest collections, write us an email and we will help you.
In 2015, with the second generation incorporated into the management and direction of the business group and with our firms present in hundreds of multi-brand stores inside and outside of Spain, we entered the digital world by opening our online store.
Manufacturing and product development, we are international
This long experience in the sector, in the treatment of raw materials and in the production processes, as well as the push of talent at the service of creativity, define an ideal product for an increasingly informed and demanding consumer.
More than half a century later, it is here, in Elche (Spain) where we continue to have our central factory and international logistics center. Since 1968 our growth has implied new challenges and objectives, therefore, the expansion of Grupo Garvalín has led us to establish production centers also in other parts of Europe and Asia. Our expert staff in charge of auditing each of the manufacturing processes travels there to guarantee the high quality that represents us, the flagship of our products for more than half a century, in addition to ensuring that all health and prevention standards are met. required by the European Community.
Team, we continue to grow day by day
Grupo Garvalín is made up of a large group of professionals who complement and empower each other and for whom doing their job well is the most important thing. Behind each design and each production process, our workers put all their knowledge in order to achieve maximum excellence in each design and in each production process. From the design to the point of sale, we take care of each process as if it were the only one.
A constant mission. Quality and innovation at the service of the feet of the little ones
With more than 50 years of experience in the children's footwear sector, at Grupo Garvalín we continue to have our mission very clear: to ensure that the smallest of the house walk comfortably and happily. For this, a high dose of demand, a worked technique, a constantly improving design and a great sense of utility are essential.
A challenge that drives us day by day to continue growing by offering the best quality in each pair of shoes. Apparently a simple challenge that, however, contains a declaration of intent and a specific way of working at a global level, patent in each of our collections and manufacturing processes.
