YOUR SANDAL SIZE (Number and Width)

LEATHER COLOR (Black or Natural)

Course Description:

During this intensive 5.5 hour workshop, you will create from start to finish, your own pair of handmade huarache sandals.  You will lace your sandals so that they fit your foot perfectly and you will cut your own soles and glue each piece together.  This course is for beginners, but be prepared to work!

HistoryPre-Columbian in origin, the sandals are believed related to the cactle or cactli, of Náhuatl origin. The name "Huarache" is derived from the Purépecha language term kwarachi, and directly translates into English as sandal.  Early forms have been found in and traced to the countryside farming communities of Jalisco, Michoacan, Guanajuato and Yucatan. Originally of all-leather construction, the thong structure around the main foot is still traditionally made with hand-woven braided leather straps.[2]Huaraches gained popularity in North America thanks to their adoption as part of the 1960s hippie lifestyle. By the end of the 20th century they were to be found all over North and South America.
