DescriptionMen's sandals constructed from one large flat piece of un-tanned cowhide, rounded but with two points emanating from the heel. The structure of the sandal is built by layering different pieces of hide on top of one another, sewn together with plastic thread. The final layer is tanned red and black and decorated with linear designs. The thong is also made of leather dyed red and yellow and decorated with green embroidered designs.
