Bohemian Apparel Sandals are natural, hand made hemp braided gladiator sandals. These sandals are a must for any modern flower child.
Bohemian Apparel was started by me, Victoria Power. I wanted to create natural shoes that would go with my style- earthy- bohemian- "hipster". I hope my shoe design takes off so that i can expand 'Bohemian Apparel' hemp gladiator shoes.
The Bohemian Apparel Hemp Gladiator Shoe:
Once i had a basic design down, I then began braiding hemp, experimenting with different braiding techniques and different style/ size beads. Once i had a style i liked and found beads that fit the earthy look i was going for i began to make the shoe. The original shoe took me about a month figure out what was going to work, and what was not going to work. I chose cork for the bottom of the shoe lined the top piece in canvas- it was comfortable- durable- and it was accessible. The shoe came together wonderfully!
This project was started because I wanted to explore whether or not I was capable of designing and making my own things.
Main materials used in the shoes: Hemp Rope, Wood Beads, Cork
