We are Alisa and Amber. We teamed up in 2017 to start Laadi Designs so that we could bring handcrafted, unique sandals to the United States.
Why do we love our sandals?
- First and most important, they are SO comfortable. We stand by that. They are truly a sandal you can wear throughout the day from one activity to the next.
- Second, they hold up. There is something about the longevity of handmade pieces, I would love to put it into words but you really have to see for yourself. These aren't sandals that you will wear for a month and donate, they stand the test of time.
- Third, we are all about unique pieces that set us apart. Laadi Design sandals do just that. The styles are basic and practical, but the hand-dyed, handwoven fabric cannot be duplicated. No two pieces are the same. The leather is hand cut and dyed, the soles are made from recycled tires. We hope you love them as much as we do!
Laadi Designs believes in fair trade and relationships based on trust, respect, and solidarity. Our ladies sandals are handcrafted in Oaxaca, Mexico by a talented group of artisans in a family workshop. With 30 years of experience, these shoe makers have a knack for gorgeous fabric, distinct style, and a passion for quality.
Our sandals create a culture of unity, they embody a genuine connection between the consumer, the artisan, and the distance in-between.
We are all on the same boat.
We understand that the purchases we make as consumers has the ability to leave a footprint around the globe…so why not leave a positive, empowering footprint? That is our mission. Empower the artisan, empower the consumer.
A portion of each purchase will go towards supporting girls education around the globe through "She's the First". Education allows us to break down the boxes society puts us in and overcome the walls of circumstance. We believe in making the most of the world we were given.
