GENERAL SANDAL INFO / CARE

GENERAL SANDAL INFO:

Our designs are unisex and the sandals are hand made from start to finish.
We use high quality calf leathers from Northern Greece that are tanned in the tanneries of the island of Crete.The leather has its natural marks and texture, which make every pair of sandals unique. We also use shoe-nails and a special leather glue to bond the various parts together. The top part of the sole is made of leather and the bottom part is made of rubber. However we can also make sandals with both parts of the sole in leather (they're more slippery though) and in this case there is an extra charge of 5.00euros per pair. Our leather sandals get a beautiful dark colour as time goes by; they also get the shape of the foot since natural leather always stretches out.

CARE:

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!!!).
