LAIDBACK LONDON SHOES
This weekend we ended up pet-sitting and my little bedroom DIY spruce has taken a backseat. So instead I did a little online sandal shopping, which means my feet will have to come out of winter hibernation! I found this great brand that not only looks fab, but all of their shoes are handmade by Kenyan artisans. Laidback London is a company committed to sourcing raw materials locally where possible and using various recycled materials including scrap metal, brass and bone to embellish their sandals. They work closely with local artisans, training them with new skills and offering ongoing support, and making sure the workers receive a fair wage. The employment created and income generated helps improves lives and has a significant impact on the local communities.
