The Lakapati is another one of our attempts to revolutionize the traditional bakya with the practice of upcycling.
The upper was upcycled from jute rice sacks which were then hand-dyed with Bayabas (Guava) leaves. The wooden heel is carefully hand-shaped.
Each pair is hand-crafted in Marikina City.
- Hand-shaped wooden heel
- Upper: Upcycled upper from jute sacks, hand-dyed with Guava leaves
- Straps: Genuine leather and braided jute detail
