These proudly Indian made flip-flops feature sturdy and durable soles with handmade uppers that have been innovatively designed and meticulously crocheted.
The uppers are interchangeable so you can virtually have as many pairs of flip-flops as you wish in varying and vibrant colours.

These uppers come in two styles: slip on or tie up and, both styles can be interchanged on the same sole.

How the crochet flip-flops came about!
My friend Jyotsna has always loved to make things. She learnt how to knit when she was 5 years old, embroidery was mastered by the age of 9 and that year she also made her first cross stitch tapestry and was an expert at it by 14.
She likes to work with bright and bold colours and her brand Artistree was created when she started hand knitting sweaters, scarves and hats. Her work was featured in Elle Magazine through which a French clothing company got in touch with her and soon she was exporting hand knitted children’s clothes.
These crochet flip-flops are the latest trick up her sleeve. Years ago she had taught herself the art of crochet from a book. Recently after coming across a pair of bare flip-flop soles, she started experimenting and a truly innovative concept was born – handmade crochet flip-flops with detachable uppers.
