I just got back from a two week trip to New Zealand. What an incredible country. The best way for me to describe it is: "Lake Tahoe meets Hawaii". It’s that amazing of a place. We toured the South Island and drew a TON of inspiration from the Kiwi culture as well as spoke with dozens of folks who live in flops year round.
During that same time Rao has been focusing efforts on the south-west market of the US. Specifically Texas. We will have a lot more on that effort shortly.
Rao and Hema just got back from a trip to Goa where they put a few of our latest designs to the test! Goa is located on the west coast of India in a region known as Konkan. Known for its beautiful beaches and comfortable climate, Goa pulls visitors from all over the world as a resort destination. Perfect for testing out Common Soles flip-flops!
Our Saahi and Natya flip-flops come delivered to you in a colorful organza bag. Organza is a shear fabric traditionally made from silk. We have ours made from synthetic filaments in the same factory that makes our flops during any down time they may have.
So other than being a handy carry bag for a pair of Common Soles we’ve discovered several other fun and practical uses for these drawstring marvels of storage!
