Utopian Rope Sandals is a small business run by East Wind Community. Originally created to make use of waste from the hammocks business Utopian Rope Sandals has taken on a life of its own. The sandals are lightweight (about 8oz. per pair), and will not rot or mildew. Because they float and get excellent traction on wet surfaces, the sandals have long been popular with boaters and canoers.
Sandals are made by a small number of skilled East Winders who are willing to teach those who are interested in the craft.
