Uzoamaka Embellished Beaded Studded Leather And Raffia Mask Slippers

Regular price £335.00

Uzoamaka meaning "Good path" in the Igbo Language of South-Eastern, Nigeria, is a delight to hand-make. I've always held a deep fascination with world arts and culture, especially my African heritage. So for this pair, I am inspired by the  African arts-masks and artefacts. 

These pair of wearable art are not your conventional footwear. The Uzoamaka is an authentic collector piece fit for a flat-shoe devotee who loves art and high octane footwear developed with attention to details and craftsmanship.

My intention for this design is to approach it with respect and love for my African traditional heritage and craftsmanship. I wanted to design a masterpiece uniquely different that the wearer will not apologise for wearing.

Comfort and functionality are crucial, so every detail served a meaningful purpose, to create a face-motif that is guaranteed to raise a smile. 

I have decorated this pair with clusters of beads, shells, brass studs, spikey trims, acrylic horn beads, paracords, silver-tone brass skulls, gold-tone brass components and stainless steel nuts. I have also fashioned other materials into this style to create decorative textures and patterns with acute attention to details.

Style the Uzoamaka slippers with any look from bohemian minidresses to Op Art outwear or any ensemble of your choice.
