These sandals from fungus workshop are particularly appealing to me–the way the straps are made is hard to figure out, they’re magical. Fortunately I have a pattern for them from Tim Skyrme’s Simple Sandalmaking book here:
I love the stitching that anchors each strap, and the name of the maker that is embossed on the strap. And, the colors! These could be made with beautiful vegetable-tanned leather from: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PergamenaNY, or natural vegetable-tanned leather could be dyed. Sandal straps and topsoles are best made from “veg” leather since it has the stiffness needed so the straps don’t pull out of them.
I’ll never look at fungus the same way again!
