People are surprised when we inform them that our group makes slippers by shredding old T-shirts. Everyone is talking about how to be “green”, to be ecologically friendly and sustainable. The Japanese have been conscious of this from long ago, an example being the making of straw slippers in the past. We would like to spread this feeling of being frugal that has been ingrained in many Japanese people through this art form.
