I had already seen Moroccan babouches made from Raffia before. But to see brogues made from Raffia just blows me away!
Since I have spent many years researching woven shoes in Mexico, specifically Huaraches (Huarache Blog and Huarache Blog on Tumblr), I know how long it takes to make a woven shoe and how difficult it is.
These shoes are amazing!
