Sandals, Carrie Forbes.

The other day I had these sandals on a shoot and was amazed by the craftsmanship behind them. They’re woven with raffia string that is spun from the raffia palm tree. Raffia is a material that’s easy to colour and doesn’t shrink in water. One pair of shoes takes one whole day to make, but are very durable when done! What do you think?
