There are many things to look forward to in April. Sure, it may be one of the hottest months of the year but it is when summer activities are in full swing. In Japan, cherry blossoms are in bloom, and this year, it is when the biggest flip-flops customization event in the country, Make Your Own Havaianas, will happen.
This year’s Make Your Own Havaianas goes back to its roots. We all know that our favorite flip flop brand was born in Brazil in 1962 but what most people do not know is that the very first flip flop was inspired by the Zori – flat, thonged Japanese Sandals made of fabric straps and rice straw soles. Havaianas flip-flops as we know now still show marks of these iconic rice patterns!—which truly makes it a child of eastern Zen and western joy.
