What you'll do

First I will explain about 5 minutes while watching Japanese culture of shoes and photos why rice straw entered the life. The sandals I make this time are not real rice straws, but I make it plastic rope that looks like real one. We will hang a rope on the big toe, and let's start knitting. For women, pants style is better than skirt. The tip of the SAMURAI Sandalds is knitted, so let's knit from the arch. It takes about 30 to 40 minutes for one leg, so it will be completed in about 60-80 minutes. Let's walk and feel it. The stimulation from the sole of the foot is very comfortable and it will be like a time slip in the Edo period. And this samurai sandals are light and easy to care. You can use in the hotel room and also airplane. And good for souvenirs, How about souvenirs for your family or friend?

Let's learn how to make "SAMURAI Sandals" with me! I am working as a YOGA instructor and a chiropractor besides making "SAMURAI Sandals". I started making sandals made of pieces of left cloth or rice straw ,traditionally (KIMONO)cloth, ten years ago and wearing them at home. I got some orders from some friends who saw it. As a Yoga instructor, I think this sandals are good for our body. They spread the fingers and the stimulation from the soles improvre the blood flow of the body. If you are not concerned about allergies, please also try real rice straw. In the old Japanese house, there were many rice straws in every family. Let's make it happily while interchanging such a story.
