“My laidback london’s are so comfortable yet amazingly stylish... I get SO many compliments each time I wear them!” Rebecca P, laidback london customer
The sandals are handmade in small runs, in workshops - not factories. Each pair is a little different, speaking to the unique workmanship of its creator. The charm and authentic character of the sandals shines through in each and every pair.
laidback london have been working with artisans and local communities in Kenya since 2002 to create beautiful, timeless products using natural and sustainable materials. The leather they use is a byproduct of the food industry & the recyclable rubber is sourced from a family-owned business close to the workshop. The packaging is minimal, the boxes and mailing bags are made from recycled paper.
The vibrant colours and distinctive designs are sure to get you lots of compliments. Be prepared to be stopped on the streets by random strangers wanting to know where you got your sandals!
