Why We Love It
Setta are comfortable traditional Japanese sandals hand-woven from soft natural fibers, with cushioned protective soles. They make a great alternative to stiff wooden geta, and can be worn with any Japanese kimono, or perfect as flip-flop for your fashion wardrobe.
Sango Town in Nara Prefecture, is a craft hub with over a century of expertise in handcrafting traditional Japanese sandals. The innovative Design Setta Sango have taken this artisanal inheritance and created a style of Japanese sandal both chic and comfortable for everyday wear.
Unlike setta or geta you will find elsewhere, these original sandals have a thickly padded and rounded straps, made of 4 layers of soft cotton and natural hemp, which eliminates the painful rubbing by molding itself to the shape of your feet. The geometric design of the cotton straps are created exclusively by Tokyo-based artist Shimizu Dani Yasunobu , inspired by the craft heritage of the region.
The sole is hand-woven from water grass, so is soft, breathable and absorbent. Instead of the flat base of most Japanese sandals, these soles are woven in a gently curved shape. The ergonomically designed padded base cushions your feet and allows you to wear them in comfort all day long. The thick hardwearing outer sole means that these sandals are suitable for any surface, indoors or outdoors, wet or dry.
