Sandal Making Process with David Chung

Designer David Chung recently showcased some of the processes that went into hand-making a pair of sandals by his own design.

“This concept was designed to express my acceptance and appreciation for my culture. Being a American/Korean, I’ve started to grasp my identity in both cultures.” – Chung
