About Us

For the love of all things beautiful and the appreciation of timeless style, ON Y VA wholeheartedly sources only products that are original and of exceptional quality.

 Reflecting this sentiment, we introduced our authentic Spanish leather sandals (traditionally known as avarcas or menorquinas) to the South African market in 2015, making us the original SA distributors of these beautiful shoes.  Since then we have added a unique range of handbags to our product collection and became the exclusive South African stockist of the enchantingly chic Bobbies footwear collection from Paris in 2017.

 Our avarcas come from the shores of Menorca to ours and have been worn by the locals for decades for their comfortable, durable and cool qualities. Handmade by the skilled artisans of our family run factory who have perfected every detail of this traditional Spanish style.  The stamp of authenticity ("Avarca de Menorca") by the Menorcan government together with the Association of Footwear Manufacturers of Menorca guarantees quality of material and manufacture requirements are met.  

Spanish avarcas remain a wardrobe staple in Spain and have fast become a must have fashion item throughout Europe, and now South Africa. The combination of luxurious quality, style, simplicity and comfort will have you wanting one in every colour!
