Silicone Fused Raffia “Dune” Shoe By Douma/Guittet

This summer shoe by Douma/Guittet is made of Raffia, a hand-woven natural fiber material with good mechanical properties, and combined with Silicone to create a minimal, functional outsole, lacing structure and collar reinforcement.

“We fused the traditional raffia fabric with CNC extruded silicone to update this handcrafted material and to explore its potential in industrial applications.” – Douma/Guittet
