Flip-flopshawaii chappalthongsJapanese sandals, or jandals are an open type of outdoor footwear, consisting of a flat sole held loosely on the foot by a Y-shaped strap, like a thin thong, that passes between the first (big) and second toes and around either side of the foot. With their origins in Egypt of the Pharaohs they are one of the oldest forms of footwear. These are just a few of my interpretions of this ancient design.

I hand dye all my sandals which enables me to achieve an richness of texture within the colour that industrial scale producers simply cannot obtain. The sandals are almost exclusively made to measure and require a fitting. Choice of shape, colour, colour of the stitching and engravings is permitted and makes no two pairs the same.

This model was commissioned by a good friend of mine from Venezuela who liked the idea something basically plain with a touch of something a 'je ne sais pas quoi'  to catch the eye. This was the result, my interpretation of his desires. Customers often leave small details to me and just give me an overall idea of what they. This gives me the chance to surprise them which, although is sometimes a risk, always ends up in delighted and happy clients.

 
 prices start at 140€  

Vegetable tanned leather (no crome) hand crafted, engraved painstakingly by hand, dyed manually layering dyes to alow the aplication of the metalic engraving.
