In other words 'sandals'... This is a picture of a Zulu sandal which was made from car tyres. The sole is made from the tread and the straps are made from the sides where the whitewall stripe is. The previous post shows how the pattern is carved.

I spent a day with Mr. Dlamini when he was making this particular sandal. These pictures show part of the process. I buy all his off-cuts and use these for making keyrings and bangles. These should feature in my Etsy shop soon.

The next pic shows a little kitten that was inspecting them. Then there is one of the sandal edges and straps being nailed on and the last one shows Mr. Dlamini cutting off the points of the nails that stick out the bottom.
