The Amman Espadrille Sneakers are handcrafted from upcycled jute rice sacks, while the heel is detailed with hand- braided jute fiber. Jute is a natural plant fiber which is extremely durable, eco- friendly, and biodegradeable, making this shoe a sustainable alternative to mass- produced sneakers.
You may also choose from a variety of vibrant Inabel weaving from Bangar, La Union to customize a pair.
Each pair is hand- crafted in Marikina City.
- Upper: Upcycled from jute sacks
- Heel cover: Braided jute
- Option to customize with On-hand Inabel Weaving
