Jute sandals, £150, oforigin.ooo
This was not a happy stretch. I was abroad for much of it, limited to what I had packed (which bored me within a week) and my teenage daughter left my sandals on the beach. In Ibiza everyone wears biodegradable jute and rubber sandals by Of Origin, which are fine in that climate but last five minutes on the rainy London pavements. Also, whatever marks they get for local, handmade and sustainable materials they lose in longevity: inevitably they last just one season.
