By Jordan Artisan & Joost Seegers.
Two Dutch designers based in Nijmegen created a new flipflop
for winter and summer.
We have got our inspiration for the slipperslof from the clothing of the Romans,
especially the details and bindings of the sandals. We worked together with the
company Dolfing, who are specialized in the technique of high frequency welding with
the material PVC. With this technique we created the aesthetic lines of the flipflop and
played with the inside and the outside of the material.
The flipflop is packed in parts and with these parts you can go to a local cobbler
in your city to fix your slipperslof. In this way we want to stimulate the local
economy and stimulate contact with local crafmanship.
