Why is this shoe inspiring?
This model features a hand woven cotton dyed with plant-based indigo from Bangkok, Thailand. The leather is a soft but resistant suede from Italy in a mangosteen color. The sole is made of leather reinforced with rubber, which provides excellent traction. The hand woven cotton of this model is dyed with plant-based indigo, which creates a deep and rich blue. The wastewater from the dying process is biodegradable. In addition to using natural dyes, the Thai weavers utilize locally picked cotton, which is less refined (not bleached), than mass-produced cotton.
