Post by: Nelson on January 02, 2010, 04:07:11 AM
Good night from Monter?a Colombia.Sudam?rica. I ask to them please that helps to obtain books me that contain information about the technique of macrame to make shoes, slippers, sandals for men, women and children. The information must contain the technical characteristics and procedures, schemes and illustrations, apparatuses, landlords, tools to make footwear artisan. I wait for by far interest and gratefulness the aid that you give me rendered. Warm greeting: Nelson Quintana

Dear Nelson,

It is not a book, and they are not really macrame, but the Japanese sandals called "waraji" are made with rope or twisted fiber.  Do a Google search on "waraji" and you will find instructions and videos.

Good luck,
Ford Walton

Dear Nelson,

It's a book, do not be fooled by the title it has two macrame shoes in this one, with a list of tools as well.
