Our sandals are made from Full Grain leather. Full grain refers to hides that have not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed (as opposed to corrected grain) to remove imperfections (or natural marks) on the surface of the hide, beautifully imperfect! 

Full grain leathers display the natural markings and grain characteristics from the animal of which it was taken. The "grain" also remains allowing the fiber strength and durability. Each strand is hand cut to form the intricate basket weave! All handcrafted in Antigua Guatemala by skilled artisans who love their craft. 

Perfect for warm summer days ahead. This is slow fashion at its best! Good for artisans, good for our earth, good for you!

Handcrafted. Vegetable tanned leather soles. High performance insoles. Classic. Connected. Natural. Fair trade. Eco-cool.
