100% Genuine leather and vibrant glass beads
Handcrafted in Kenya
Part of Aspiga's sustainable fashion collection: supporting local artisans keeping their craft alive and helping to maintain their livelihood
Due to our sandals being handmade, there may be slight imperfections
The sandals are packaged in a gorgeous, colourful reusable fabric bag.
Aspiga runs a monthly Beach Clean-Up Campaign in Malindi Kenya where they pledged to pick up a basket of waste for every pair of Kenyan Sandals sold. We sponsor twelve children volunteers, who help with the beach clean, to attend school, enabling them to get the education they had previously been unable to afford.
Ethically made, sustainable packaging
The sandal bags are made by Elimu Sewing Project in Kenya which supports young women from vulnerable backgrounds to pursue a 2-year training program that equips them with income-generating skills and a sewing trade.
Glass beads are fully recyclable and are coloured using natural dyes.
Glass beads are a particularly good alternative to plastic beads because when it breaks down, it remains safe and stable and releases no harmful chemicals into the surrounding environment. Glass also takes far less energy to produce and has a long life span.
By rejecting leather we would destroy many jobs for individuals who rely on the leather industry for their livelihood.
We only use leather byproducts from the meat industry. The leather would otherwise be wasted.
Additionally, Aspiga leather is only coloured using natural dyes. It will last a lifetime and be passed on to future generations. It is the antithesis of fast fashion.
