Our Story //
Our founder, Natascha is a Northern based footwear and accessories designer, creating the ultimate luxe leather flats for women.
Combining luxury with a splash of daring, the Taschka ethos is to create striking and versatile shoes that bring an element of fun to their classic silhouettes, using bold prints, textures and vibrant colours. The brand has evolved from a collection of simple ballerinas to a year-round range of loafers, lace ups, brogues and most recently, ankle boots and mules.
From a background in fashion and luxury travel PR, Natascha moved from organising wanderlust worthy trips for high profile celebrities and journalists, to the cobbled streets of Florence, where she studied at the world renowned Polimoda School of Fashion. Here, she learned the intricate methods of shoemaking from master craftsmen before she set about creating her vision - a brand of luxe leather flats; to be substantial, stylish and an affordable everyday luxury.
Each of our shoes is named after the three letter airport codes of many a dreamy destination around the world. The subtle hints of each location are apparent to those in the know; from the bar detail of FLO (Florence) reminiscent of the many bridges of the Renaissance city, the contemporary take on the Indian slipper in the form of JAI (Jaipur) to the chic heart detail of french-inspired ANE (Loire Valley) and more recently, the glitzy lace up LAX (Los Angeles) with it’s sparkle, spots and candy stripes.
Signature features of each shoe include a padded leather lining for extra comfort and a henna-inspired leather etched sole as a nod to our designer's heritage.
