New fashion led maker-made sandals from Japan

New fashion led maker-made sandals from Japan

Hands On Workshop

New fashioned, artisan made sandals from DSS Japan are now in the HOW store & HOW Etsy store. 
Sandals from Design Setta Sango (DSS) are based on traditional Japanese style sandals worn with kimono, re-engineered for today. The fashion-led designs are adapted for the demands of activity and comfort. 

HOW is showcasing two new collections - Neo Japonism Collection showcases  the patterns and colour of contemporary Japanese textiles in fashion footwea; Tempyo Collection captures the darker, moodier patterns of ancient Nara. 
For the Neo Japonism Collection, DSS has partnered with Japanese designers, TURBO and COOH, to add contemporary textile designs to their fashion sandals  – from bold primary geometrics to pretty summer florals, the NEW JAPONISM collection is fashion footwear with a traditional heritage.
The Tempyo Collection show off the Asiatic Tempyo pattern in the embroidered details on the straps. The Tempyo pattern originated in the Mediterranean world and west Asia in the Nara period 1300 years ago when it was Japan's ancient capital and the hub of trade for textiles and spices. 
Available NOW direct to consumer, and to retailers, from Hands On Workshop and HOW’s Etsy store. 
About Design Setta Sango 

DSS was started by 4 people in a town in Nara, Japan began with the intention: "we try to break with those general ideas and redesign a totally new footwear to fit our modern lifestyle." 
"Traditional footwear had the image of being hard to walk in and painful and only used with a yukata or kimono. Instead we have re-fashioned every part from the sole to the embroidered detail or contemporary patterned cottons. The straps are made to be soft and not cause chafing on skin. These are made by Setta craftspeople whose skills are passed from generation to generation.
The 'outer sole' or sole of the sandal is what makes the DSS sandal so comfortable - a black rubber wedge sole which allows a slight spring when walking. The insole is made from a textured woven fabric making it comfortable to wear and withstand wear and tear.
  • Elegant traditional Japanese design
  • More durable than other 'slides' footwear
  • Straps which are comfortable to wear for long periods. 
  • Unisex styles
