About us


Who are we?

Malena started in 2013, selling Spanish hand fans In 2014, we got to know Lunatango, then a relatively new brand from Buenos Aires and were immediately convinced. Since you can meet us at milongas, encuentros and festivals in Belgium and Holland, but you are welcome to visit us in Antwerp (Borgerhout), near Zurenborg.


Our mission is "to give our customers a top dance experience providing elegant, stable and hight-quality dance shoes."


Why Malena?

Because we love this beautiful tango song from 1941 written by Lucio Demare (music) and Homero Manzi (lyrics).

Katrin Urwitz was a wigmaker and makeup artist at the theatre in Stockhollm, Sweden. She embarked on a trip to South America which eventually led to Buenos Aires, where she started dancing tango which awoke her interest in shoes.

She wanted to learn how shoes are made by hand. And sos he did. As a result of this personal journey she started Katrinski. The bigger part of the production she does herself, from idea to design and throught all the steps to a finished pair of shoes.
