These original shoes are dyed using the traditional shibori technique, by an Indigo Dyeing Master from Kyoto! The fabric is then carefully made into shoes by the oldest gassho shoemaker group in Taiwan, LITTLE GARDEN. With no two similar patterns each shoe is a unique one. They are also extra easy to walk in, super lightweight and boast a shape that can fit all types of feet comfortably!
