corn husks upcycle slippers. Made in Japan. Hand made.
*These slippers are made from a very soft and lightweight material (natural corn husk).They are very comfortable and breathable, but are not quite as durable as some other slippers. Rather than wearing them when you walk around your house, we recommend you put them on while relaxing or lounging around. Thank you for your understanding. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. Thank you very much.
These slippers are made in farm villages in northern Japan.They are made from naturally dried, woven corn husk. Inedible corn husks have been disposed of in very large quantities, but these slippers recycle and make use of them.
In the autumn when corn is harvested, the corn husks are carefully peeled away and dried, and then in the winter when farm work comes to an end the husks are meticulously woven together. It is a process that requires an extremely difficult and time-consuming technique. When finished, the sippers are remarkably light and breathable. Because they don't collect moisture, you can feel completely comfortable wearing them without ever feeling any dampness. They are best for wearing in the summer, but as they are also able to retain heat, they remain slightly warm during autumn and winter. However, as the manufacturers of these slippers are aging, their numbers are declining. The amount manufactured each year is dropping sharply, generating concerns over continuing production in the future. We are very eager to make as many people as possible aware of these slipper's appeal 👍👍👍
