We absolutely loved getting back on the road last December and doing the festival season once more! It was fantastic to see all of our festival family again after the long Covid drought. It seemed like everyone was so happy and appreciative of what used to be our ‘normal’. The fun, frivolity, friendship, music, art and creativity bursting through, was like a beautiful rainbow after the storm.
We are now taking some precious time to go to Italy and reconnect with family after four years. We are so excited to soak up the Italian summer vibes for a few months and kick back on stunning sun-filled beaches eating gelato. We look forward to living the simple life for a spell.
We’ll be back in Spring with a brand new range of clothing, boots, felt hats and more. Our website will stay open but please be patient with us if our orders take a little longer to get to you while we are away. Stay tuned for Spring! We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on both at the festivals and online !

Meet the Wanderer Boots
The Wanderer boots combine all of our signature style in a everyday boot. This style can be worn as a full ankle boot or buttoned down.
Our Wanderer boots are handmade by an Indigenous Guatemalan family of shoe-makers with three generations of experience. The soles are a combination of compressed leather and reclaimed car-tyres, which can be resoled and can last up to 30 years if cared for well.
Our shoe project
Ethnic Spirit Clothing works personally with small businesses around the globe.
Our focus is originality and high quality products made to last.
When you choose to wear Ethnic Spirit shoes, you support sustainability and the preserving of traditional arts by Indigenous Guatemalan families.
Ethnic Spirit shoes use soles that are made from recycled car tyres and the fabrics are antique hand-embroidered blouses made and worn by Indigenous women in Guatemala.
Convertible Cowgirl Boot
These "two-in-one" boots can be worn as Cowgirl Boots or rolled down as Ankle Boots. Handmade by an Indigenous Guatemalan family of shoe-makers with three generations of experience, these boots have compressed leather soles which can be resoled and can last up to 30 years if cared for well.
Fold Down Desert Boots
These antique cloth and leather boots can be worn at three different heights; ankle boots, hiker boots and high top boots, with sturdy press-studs to fasten at each height.
We have a huge range of bright fun creative & colourful socks available to keep your toes toasty and stylish this winter.
Leggings and Pants
Our names are Jessica and Giovanni and we live in the beautiful Blue Mountains National Park, NSW where we return after each busy festival season to enjoy the peacefulness of nature and our community of friends and family. We have a gorgeous 4 yr old son who brings us constant delight, mixed with regular teachings of the challenges of parenting a toddler and we have a new baby boy now too!
