They are embellished with a total trendy collection of Howlite crosses in various colors and sizes, suede tassels and crystals, adding an elegant Gothic aesthetic and making this pair really unique and completely hand crafted.
They were inspired by the collection of Alexander McQueen which is based on Gothic look.
♥ These leather flip flops (sandals - santalia in Greece), are made by high quality calf leather, which, because it's handmade, has it's natural marks and texture (especially in beige), which make every pair of the sandals unique, apart 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.
Avoid getting them wet in sea water, 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 where as sea water 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, natural-as in photo, black, silver, gold).
