The pretty photos to the left and below show a pair of pointe shoes with the brand name Damia. These particular shoes are being offered for sale on a French language merchant site, something like an American version of Nextag.
When the name Damia as a pointe shoe brand first came to my attention last year, it was being mentioned on a French dance blog. There are some references to the name Damia of Paris in many French articles about dance and dance supplies. Unfortunately, that’s about it.
As of this post, the actual company and website address of Damia of Paris is unknown. It is also hard to say whether Damia is actually a French brand or if the company originates somewhere else, but has distributors throughout Europe.
If you are like me, the sheer number of pointe shoe brands that could be out there in the world is mind-boggling. Until I find out more about the Damia brand, it will be another puzzle to solve on my list of beautiful, pink satin mystere chaussures de pointe.
