- Hello I'm

 Pedro Suarez

I’m Pedro Julio Suarez Garcia, from Bogotá. I’m 61 years old. I consider myself a noble, serious, and even sometimes grumpy person; it may be because of my age or a consequence of what I have lived through. I started working in the footwear industry in 1969 and I have dedicated all my life to footwear manufacturing.

Maybe the reason I have always dedicated my life to the craft, is because the production of footwear is what allows you to earn a living where I live. Most people I know work in footwear production.

Shoes are a part of my life, they are a terminal addiction, a passion. They are what I do best. Shoes are my joys, my sorrows, they are everything to me.

To me, By Maria is a blessing from God. I am fortunate to be a part of this dream. I feel privileged and blessed to have been chosen as the first to start this project, and to be able to contribute to it with my knowledge. By Maria means support, help, love, and unconditional friendship. I just feel happy to be a part of it.
