Woven Leather Sandal

These woven leather sandals are easy, lightweight, and made to travel with you for years to come. They combine heirloom master shoemaking techniques from Athani, India with a minimalist silhouette. Sandals are made with traditionally-tanned water buffalo leather, fewer synthetics and biodegradable materials, and naturally-dyed colors. *Half sizes size up.

Mohinders works with families of 3rd-and 4th-generation shoemakers and leather tanners and strives to uphold respectful design and sustainability from start to finish. This means heirloom, regional processes, intentional choices to reduce waste and use lower-impact materials, and creating shoes that last and age beautifully.
