Slippers / thongs / sandals / crocs/ clip footwear or flip flops
Considered a dying artisan skill, this footwear making knowledge resides within previous generations. The ‘timber slipper’ is made from a special tree cut and shaped to an individual’s foot. We were told it ‘moulds itself to the your feet over time’.
While walking home one night we heard a clip clop melody which made us look down and smile… as we passed a local woman who lives up our street wearing wooden slippers… I wonder for how much longer!
