A few years ago when my office changed locations, I discovered a cute little boutique with a pink awning called Pookie & Sebastian, but it was only recently that I chose to venture in and aside from an amazing dress and bracelet that I purchased, I found something else there that is far more valuable, beautiful sandals by a company called Laidback London. They were a little pricey, but you could tell that they were of a high quality and worth the cost. Me, being the type of person who needs to know everything, immediately set about to find out information on the company and was amazed at what I found.
Laidback London was founded in 2002, spawning from the idea of making quality, fair trade sandals that are uniquely beautiful and timeless. The products are created in Africa, the leather is from a local tannery and everything about these sandals is handmade. The leather is dyed and cut by hand. The beads are hand sewn into the leather and the shoes are stitched together by hand. I have only worn my pair a few times, but I have received many compliments. Not only are they beautiful and comfortable, they can be dressed down or up. Really, the perfect sandals for summer. Check them out at laidbacklondon.com.
