Located in the Plaza del Alpargatero, it was created as a tribute to Cehegín's industrial past and to the locals who had to emigrate to Catalonia as a result of the disappearance of the espadrille industry, which was their livelihood.

This means of production was so important that it was able to supply all the footwear for the French army in the First World War.

The author of this bronze monument is the Valencian sculptor Rafael Pi Belda.
