Here are some vegetable tanned, handcrafted Huarache sandals
Woven Huaraches are unique footwear made using a complex
construction method where the upper is made from a single woven strip of
natural vegetable tanned leather. Like a basket the upper is woven directly
into the sole without glue to make many intricate upper designs.
The ukata Cien Clavos by Huaraches Martinez are some of the
finest Huaraches Sandals in Mexico. Jose Martinez is continuing in the
footsteps of his father and grandfather, making their same Huarache designs. A
true craftsman he works alone, finishing one or sometimes 2 pairs per day,
while he also organically tans his own leathers using mimosa tree bark.
ukata Huaraches aren't your typical market Huaraches, nor
are they factory made. They are the very best, rare footwear designs, made by a
single artisan, that you are unlikely to find even in Mexico.
Where else can you find footwear where the leather is also
tanned by the shoemaker? For further information and photos of the ukata Cien
