Crochet Lace Shoes :: Lacey and Lovely
Never too much lace
hand crafted & ethically made
Made from 100% hemp yarn, crocheted onto a vegan leather base, and with rubber soles, these lacy shoes by Luludo are the stuff of summer dreams.
Imagine wearing them on the beach, at a picnic in the park, or on a busy Saturday morning at the farmer's market. Teamed up with a floaty skirt in linen, or denim shorts, they create just the right amount of sophisticated bohemian style perfect for sunny weekends.
Available in a range of earthy tones, the shoes are hand made in Bali in an intricate process which takes around 3-4 hours to crochet.
Because they are made by hand, and from a natural product, each shoe is slightly unique - which we think adds to the charm & preciousness.
The shoes are the brain child of an Australian who had kept her mother's crochet shoes from the 1980s, and was determined to find a way to make a new pair for herself from sustainable (and vegan) materials. She learnt to crochet & make the shoes herself, then realising she wouldn't be able to keep up with demand, set about teaching a group of Balinese artisans what she had learned - so they could earn a fair wage while producing a classic item.
By supporting hand made production, an age old skill is kept alive for future generations.
Aren't they dreamy?
