100% handmade sandals made from the finest quality leather and amazing vintage Hmong fabric. No sewing machines or assembly lines are in sight.
The Hmong tribe are an ethnic hill tribe group which live near me in the mountains in the north of Thailand. The fabric insert used in this bracelet is Hmong vintage tribal tapestry which is beautifully cross stitched. The Hmong people are believed to have been the original inhabitants of the Yellow River Valley (ancient China). When expansion took place from the northern part of China, the Hmong were pushed southwards to escape oppression. For centuries, they struggled to establish themselves as independent people. Eventually they settled in what is now known as Laos, Vietnam, and Myanmar, and more recently in the hillsides of northern Thailand. For along time the Hmong people supported themselves by cultivating opium. Recently, they have turned from opium growing, and are supporting their income from the sales of their beautiful craftwork.
All these sandals are hand cut, hand punched and hand stitched. They have beautiful vintage Hmong fabric incorporated into their unique design. They combine style and functionality. An enormous amount of care and energy goes into making each sandal. They are totally unique, extremely comfortable and durable.
