Mangoes are indigenous to South India and are often found on the same farms growing rubber trees that make your Gurus. Mangoes have been a part of Indian life for thousands of years and are popular in many dishes, from chutneys to Mango Lassis, a sweet, orange Indian shake made with yogurt and sugar. Guru captured this essence in the orange sandals and they will definitely be a show stopped on the beach or your next outdoor adventure.
Based on over 5,000 years of Indian tradition, Gurus are unique, stylish and comfortable sandals sustainably sourced from rubber trees. The wooden sandals that inspired Gurus were even worn by Mahatma Gandhi!
The rubber for Gurus comes from trees! In a process kind of like tapping maple syrup, natural latex is harvested and processed by hand from rubber trees. This process can continue daily for 25 years without harming the tree. Using primarily natural rubber makes Gurus biodegradable and much better for the environment than traditional plastic or foam flip-flops and sandals. Natural rubber makes Gurus the most comfortable pair of sandals you have worn. The sole cushions every step and will form to your feet over time. Because Gurus come from trees, Guru plants a tree for every pair they sell.
Each pair also comes in a beautiful 100% premium jute bag featuring a Gandhi quote.
