Saroi woven sandal straps 2012
I almost wore out my sandals and straps i wove last year, they were so comfortable so I bought a new pair of ssekos made in Uganda SSEKOS and went to my saori warping frame and saori piccolo loom and wove a new pair of straps. Just in time for our 100 degree weather today. I designed and thought up weaving my own sandal straps last year so I went looking for sandals that I could use them with without having to make the sandals as well. Now I wear these almost all year long here in california.
I used linen for the warp yarn this year for added strength.
The piccolo loom with my weaving two straps simultaneously
To help lace the straps through the sandal loops I put aglets on the straps ends
