My Story

10 years ago, I launched my shoe brand ESSKA, with an aim to offer women a solution... To wear stylish shoes that ARE COMFORTABLE and affordable! Without any compromise... Initially it was for me and my friends, now more than 100,000 women wear Esska shoes.... 

As an architect, I value functionality. I don't like decoration and ornaments. I believe in simplicity and clean aesthetics.  I design everything myself... I draw and redraw. I go to leather shows to pick my materials and colours. I visit factories to create my samples. And the most important thing, I TRY THEM ON. I scrutinize them, I think of every possible foot type, the wider, the narrower, the high instep the low instep...  I modify them, over and over… until I reach the perfect fit... the one that is easy to wear and to keep on for hours a day. 

I don’t work alone. But everyone who works with me follows the same ethos. We want to service our customers' needs and fulfill their expectations. We enjoy what we do and do it from the heart.

My Idea

10 years on, my passion for shoes is still strong, but I have other passions too… and one of them is watches. So I decided to design watches with the same Esska ethos. Minimal, clean, timeless, stylish, with the little hint of fun our shoes are known for. And just like my shoes, affordable... without compromising quality

I have worked with experts to develop two amazing watches. Every detail has been studied, amended and refined to create the watches I want to wear.  

 

The watches

The final prototypes are here. And they look great. 

 

The specs

We have created the best of everything, and kept to our promise to keep the prices affordable.

  • Genuine leather straps
  • Stainless 36mm steel cases
  • Japanese 3 hand movement
  • Stainless steel buckle fastening
  • Flat lenses
  • 2 year warrantee
  • Packaged in a beautiful box with a velvet cushion

 

 

Why I need your help? 

The prototypes are here and I need your help to make the initial production run.  

Please join me in my quest to create Esska's first watch and back my Kickstarter project. 

Thank you and I look forward to sending you your reward!

Risks and challenges

We know that creating and delivering a product is a complicated process. We have been doing it for 10 years.
We will keep our backers informed during the production process. We'll do this with regular updates and sharing pictures as often as possible…
If somewhere along the way we find that there is delay in production, or that we cannot make the timeline, we will be as transparent as possible to keep all of our backers informed.
