Swandals are colourful, unique, beaded sandals from Tanzania.
The soles are real leather which eventually moulds to your foot and becomes hard to swap for another pair of shoes.
The styles cut across seasons. They are easy to wear and can be dressed up or down.
They get attention!
The bead work is so intricate and detailed and every pair is different that you will rarely find someone else with the same look.
The styles are different so just about any foot shape, size or personal preference will find something to suit!
The women from the Masai region in East Africa have been using their skills to design their extravagant jewellery for centuries.
Transferring their skills to making sandals has opened up a new world for them in terms of income possibilities.
