Initial idea from Hannah from Arbon:
I am inconsolable because my wonderful flipflops, which look similar to the ones on your Swahali pearl sandals broke last year.
I am a huge Africa fan and I love to travel the country over and over again…
My fashion should express this.
I can't find sandals like this anywhere else to reorder, so I'm trying to do it this way. If I can do something good at the same time – all the better !
You should have dark brown leather, with as many coloured beads above the foot as possible. Open at the back – no buckle or strap or anything.
My previous ones have been embroidered with pearls above the toe and ended broadly in the middle of the foot…
I would be very interested if I could find something like this – or something similar 🙂 Thank you very much for your offer!
The story of the custom made wonderful flipflops:
I am happy to provide an offer for your idea.
I use high quality beads and leather for my sandals and other products.
Would you kindly attach a clearer picture and the size you want?
Thanks for your answer.
Unfortunately I do not have a clearer picture. And since the sandals are no longer available, I cannot make a new one and send it to you.
My size would be 38.
No problem at all. I get the concept; brown leather sandal, with cowrie shells and multicolored beads decoration.
I am beginning on your order right away. Hope you love the final outcome.
Unfortunately I do not see a photo yet, but I am very much looking forward to it.
Enjoy your work.
Unfortunately I don't have pictures since with this pandemic I can't physically go to the workshop. I give instructions on phone. My artisans, like many other in the sector don't have camera enabled phones.
Good news is the job is complete waiting to find out how it will reach my local area manager.
The photo you provided wasn't clear so I conjured up a design of what I imagined your previous pair was going by your description.
Attached is a photo of the final product. Hope you love it.
Thank you, Serah. It's beautiful. I
