For years gravitypope customers and gravitypope staff have been huge fans of Cydwoqs outstanding designs and amazing craftsmanship. So needless to say we are extremely excited to present a one night only meeting with Cydwoq designer and founder, Rafi Balouzian!
Based in Burbank California, Rafi will be at gravitypope Vancouver (2205 west 4th ave) November 20 from 6 to 7 pm for an exclusive presentation of the Cydwoq Spring 2011 collection
Rafi Balouzian comes from a long line of master shoe-makers. In the early 1900s, his great-grandfather earned the reputation as a true artisan, crafting custom-made shoes to discriminating customers in Armenia. Years later, he established a factory manufacturing boots for markets throughout the Middle East. Rafiâ€™s father, Hrair Balouzian, spent his teenage years at this factory immersing himself in every facet of shoe-making.
The Cydwoq factory was started in Burbank, California in 1996. The mission then, as now, was to create hand-crafted shoes using the best biological leathers and glues that provided the ultimate walking comfort in unique and timeless designs.
Join us Saturday 6 to 7 pm for some drinks and an amazing opprotunity to meet Rafi and preview the Spring 2011 collection. In addition, we will be offering an exclusive 15% discount off of our current Cydwoq 2010 collections and the opprotunity to pre order spring styles! Here is a little sample of some gravitypope customer favorites from this past season.
This is a gravitypope Vancouver exclusive, so we hope to see you there. Sorry no rain checks.
