more saori woven sandal straps

I needed to weave a second pair of straps for my Sseko sandals, narrower , and I got to use my aglet crimper.
I wove two simultaneously on my saori loom . finished width 1/2' but you could weave these on a ridged heddle loom , they are 85" long.


the multi color cotton 8/2, is my hand dyed warp I dyed.

EMPTY AGLET

my feet are all set for hot weather now.

  1. These are fabulous! Where did you find the soles? Or did you cut them yourself?

  3. I love these as much as your Mohop laces, excellent job, and thanks for sharing your notes. Maybe I need to drag my RH out, re-warp it and get to weaving. Any comments on the amount of time these took?
