Ever slipped into a pair of sandals and instantly thought they were "mend to be"? You can experience this first hand once you shop from Indie brand, Mend's line of comfortable, functional and cruelty-free footwear. There's so much to love about their collection, we honestly don't know where to start!
For one, all their designs are inspired by travel and come alive through skilled craftsmanship. Like the Palm Batua Sandals, a beautiful green and tan strappy pair. These take inspiration from a vintage batua (wallet), courtesy the designer's bus ride in Kochi where she spotted a ticket collector's charming rugged bag! Secondly, Mend only sources indigenous materials from the grassroots like Bamboo from Orissa, Jute from Chennai and Mashru from Gujarat. Finally and most importantly for us, Mend celebrates maximum comfort which is why all their sandals have a 6mm cushion for a feeling of gliding while walking.
Shop for Mend's collection, right here on Shop On LBB. Some of our favourites are the Kokan Tiles Sliders (inspired by the tiled roof homes of Kovalam), Crescent Sandals, Nautical Sliders, Madurai Bamboo Kolhapuris and Nimbu Sliders with French knots in resham dhaga.
Every pair is all vegan and come in sizes up to EUR 41. Prices start at INR 2,000.
