Scoubidou was always around when I was a child, and apparently it has been since the 1960s when Sacha Distel wrote the song that gave this weaving technique its name. The leftover plastic threads I found on a forgotten drawer (that belonged to my older sister) become the scoubidou straps that build the upper of this handmade flatform sandal. As I see it is in an inspiring technique that results in a colorful shoe very in tune with current trends, and on top of that it is completely UPCYCLED even though it is plastic. The towering outsole for the piece is also made from rescued bits and bops including an espadrille footbed and a Vibram runner sole. All making and construction is handmade by me at home trying to have the least impact possible.
