Description

This pair of woven slippers features pink soles and pink-and-tan striped tops. They have an open back and a white bottom.

In Japanese culture, people remove their shoes when entering homes and other buildings, especially where the floors may have rugs, polished wood floors, or tatami (grass mats). Once inside, many people wear slippers around the home. As they are not generally worn outside, the soles are kept clean, and therefore the building's floors are kept clean as well.
