All TOJ sandal ribbons are handwoven by Guatemalan artisans with 100% cotton yarn. Our straps are washable and do not fade. Each one is approximately 63 inches long and 0.5 inches wide. Watch our videos to see how to create different styles with your TOJ sandals or create your own style. All of the straps are interchangeable with all of our sandal bases, allowing you to tie and style your sandals in many different ways. Irregularities are a characteristic of our unique handcrafted products and are not to be considered defective.
