The older Japanese are always lamenting about how craftsmanship is dying in Japan because younger people don't care to learn and keep alive the old crafts. And while this might be true to a point, there are also many younger Japanese who come up with ideas for reviving older concepts and creating new crafts. Take the Children's Indoor Flip-Flops Mocha, for example: They are essentially a pair of zori, the traditional sandals the Japanese wear with kimono, but reconfigured especially for the feet of young children today!
The innovation lies in the material: the Children's Indoor Flip-Flops Mocha has been made by braiding together strands of 100% cotton knitting yarn and attaching a strap (also 100% cotton) to them. The result is a very soft everyday slipper with an uneven surface that gives the sensation of walking on the beach! You can get them in three sizes (16 cm/6.3", 18 cm/7", and 20 cm/7.9") and with an adjustable strap for fitting them to your children's feet.
