Who doesn't love a good pair of sneakers? We sure do, but what is even better, is a pair that has a fabric that was made by hand on a back strap loom by these incredibly talented women.
Every pair we create is unique, handmade with love and takes a significant amount of time. This is traditionally a woven fabric that is made into pillows, bed runners, accents to clothing and bags, etc. One thing that we pride ourselves on at Eclectic Array is that we re-purpose beautifully made traditional pieces into something you may not expect - but will love, appreciate and use! By doing this, we are able to buy more from artisans since we completely transform the uses, giving them more opportunity than what is typically expected.
Each two meter piece of woven material comes to us as it is traditionally made on the loom. We then assign it a shoe size, determine whether it will be a high top or a low top, and then send it off to our talented manufacturers in Mexico that will create our finished product.
