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 of the animal from 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. Fairtrade. Eco-cool.

MEASURE FIRST: Please note that we no longer offer one free size exchange for Sandals. Always measure first without socks when using our Printable Size Chart for this style.

How we make them

A craftsman cuts the leather by hand, choosing the leather carefully and making sure that he follows the grain of the leather, his expert eye tells him the best way to cut each piece. He then sews each piece with accuracy and exactness only seasoned cobblers have mastered. Each upper body is placed then in the shoe form and with skilled and strength, the master cobbler dresses the form and prepares it to attach the leather sole. The soles are then layered, one on top of another, he then cuts and sands the leather to perfection. Once the glue is dry the leather Artisan then carefully builds-up the finish with an expert’s eye, and touch, to achieve an aged patina in just the right places to reflect the aged qualities only time, wear, and frequent care could have accomplished naturally.
