Suzhou Cobblers designer Denise's description: Because I don't go to the vegetable market very often, when I sometimes go, my views are fresh. I see Chinese vegetables as full of personality in terms of shape and taste? Take Chinese cabbage. The fat and tender cabbage stalks and round leaves are available in all seasons. But every season you eat it, it tastes a little different. Edamame wears its woolen coat regardless of the season, summer, autumn and winter -- and the green beans inside are sweet and tender. (I like mine fried with shrimp.) We may see beautiful vegetables every day. But we’ve stopped paying attention. I’m trying to get us to really see the beauty of these everyday vegetables. So I embroidered Chinese cabbage and edamame on my shoes. London’s V&A Museum seems to approve: my Garden slippers were added to the museum’s permanent collection in 2013.
As shoes are made to order, they will be available to ship 40 days from purchase.
