Make a statement with these so beautiful, elegant handcrafted leather sandals, featuring ivory and coral mother of pearl shells, together with crystals and charms. They would be ideal for a summer wedding, but they can become your perfect summer accessory, whether going to the beach or just hanging out by the pool.
♥ These leather flip flops (sandals - santalia in Greece), are made by high-quality calf leather, which, because it's handmade, has its natural marks and texture (especially in beige), which make every pair of the sandals unique, apart from my crafting and beading. The bottom part is made of rubber. They get darker as time goes by and they get the shape of the foot since natural leather always stretches out. They were worn (the plain ones) by some of the biggest names in Art and show-biz including the Beatles, Jackie Onassis, Rudolf Nureyev, Sophia Loren and they are based on the footwear of Socrates, Plato, Pericles, Achilles and Helen of Troy.
♥ CARE: Avoid getting them wet in seawater, but if you do rinse them out under a faucet, let them dry and then smear regular baby oil to soften them up. Baby oil makes them soft and dark whereas seawater makes them very dark and stiff. Keep them away from heat radiators and especially puppies as well as some adult dogs (they love them!!!).
♥ The color of the leather can change (white, dark brown, nude, black, silver, gold ).
♥ Please allow 5-8 days before shipping,as we make these fresh, from scratch, just for you! Thanks :-)
