Ladies sandal, California thong

California sandal

 

Flip-flops, hawaii chappal, thongs, Japanese 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

 

womens thong-sandal with engraving  

This is a version that is engraved and sewn by hand. The straps are padded with foam for extra comfort.

Below a version with hand engraving. The sole has two colours, red and dark brown around the edge. I like this effect as it brings out the gold engraved pattern which would otherwise be lost in the red.
