Unusual Materials Used to Make Shoes You Would Never Think !


We are all accustomed to our shoes being made from leather, suede, canvass sneakers or “plastic fantastics”. Whether we’re talking beach sandal, winter boots or a stylish bowling shoe the materials are generally pretty similar, but some creative geniuses have discovered the joy of making shoes out of different, rather unusual materials very often simply utilizing whatever materials were at hand.

Prepare to be amazed, astounded and impressed . . .

Shoes from Ivory

Ivory poaching has driven the majestic elephant to the brink of extinction in many areas but way back in the 17th Century it was used by some of the wealthiest people for shoes and other items. The people of India considered Ivory to be so precious that is was reserved entirely for use by members of royalty and holy men. Ivory shoes were extremely beautiful although I’m not sure about the comfort factor.

Shoes from Metal

Metal footwear has been discovered from the times when men first discovered the art of metal-smith. Metal shoes were relatively fragile and, once again beautiful although the sheer thought of it brings extremely uncomfortable thoughts to mind. Metal shoes are okay for horses, apart from that forget it.

Shoes from Fish

Fishskin shoes are common place in many locations; just think about it, fish skin is water proof making it the perfect choice for wetter climes close to rivers and the sea. Many native tribes still use fish skin to create their footwear.

Shoes from Grass and Straw

Straw stalks and grass have terrific insulation properties and can be used as outdoor footwear or shoe liners. Alaskan Aleuts would typically wear grass socks on the inside of their boots to protect their feet against the moisture.

Shoes from Human Hair

Shoes made from human hair are pretty rare, it has to be said, but they are not entirely unknown. Socks made from a combination of wool, yucca fiber and human hair were discovered in Arizona from the 13th century natives. Don’t try this at home folks.

Shoes from Wood

Wooden shoes are not quite so unusual and are in fact quite common these days. Wood, however, is generally used for the base and sole of the shoe although it was originally carved out for the whole shoe – wooden clogs are most commonly associated with the traditions of The Netherlands. Deep wooden platforms were also extensively used in Japan as a means of protecting the hem of a delicate kimono from trailing in the dirt. There are also some extremely intricate and delicate examples of wooden bridal shoes with elaborate pointed toes found in late 19th century France.

Shoes made from Bark

Plaited birch bark were commonly worn in early 20th century Finland to protect the wearers feet from the mud, snow and rain. Much cheaper than leather shoes they were often used with cloth wraps for added warmth and comfort. Bark shoes only last for around one week.

Shoes made from Silk

Silk shoes have a very special place throughout history from the elaborate shoes and stockings worn by men in the 1700’s to compliment their breeches and tailored coats to the brides of today. The Chinese are also famous for their silk Lotus Shoes which were used extensively from the 10th century right up to just a few short years ago when the practice of binding the women’s feet to keep them small like a lotus flower was eventually proven to be out-dated, though not mass produced any more these shoes are still available as a special order.

Indian Painting which was sold for Rs 9.63 Crore


Most of the times I have come across situations where,, Tea or coffee spill on your white shirt makes a design or art and we just say it as modern art and speak about selling it for Lakhs of Rupees,, Jokes apart but There is lot of craze for Art around the Globe, But I was Surprised to see a interview on NDTV with Tayyab Mehta who happens to be a Great Indian Painter. One of his Paintings " Falling Figure with Bird " sold for Rs 9.63 Crores. 

Don't be surprised,, The worlds costliest painting (named Card Players) is 250 million dollars. Painter was Paul Cezanne this painting was purchased by State of Qatar.

Most of these Costliest Paintings are Auctioned On-line through websites like Christies and Sothebys . Cost of Art is invaluable, The Auctions and Price paid for buying these Paintings prove that.

Coming to the Painting "Falling Figure with Bird" made by Tayyab Mehta, This painting illustrates A Falling Bird (Theme is bit difficult to understand and explain) Perhaps this Painting has its origin from the crime witnessed by Tayyab Mehta 

Tayyab Mehta is a well known Indian Artist who has several great Paintings to his credit, he was born in Gujarat in 1925 and died in 2009 (mumbai). Surprising thing is he lost vision one eye and other eye has only partial vision before he died in 2009.

He was not after fame and money and would always use to paint about his times pre-Independence.  Apart From Tayyab Mehta Painting of MF Hussain also got great Popularity and Price. 

This type of Great Artists stand as a Inspiration to the newcomers. Long live Art and Long live India. After reading this I hope atleast You will not discourage your children from taking up Painting as a Career.

But I believe sweaters are good for regions where the temperatures are not so less, Now a days you can find sweaters which are highly fashionable, They can be worn straight away on jeans and can replace tops or t- shirts. College going girls prefer this sweaters the most.

Sweat shirts: Sweat shirts are mostly used over t shirts or tops and they come with different locking mechanisms like buttons and zips , They are simply like jackets but are made of fabric which just looks very similar to the regular clothing you wear.

Long Jackets:  These Long Jackets are used much less for style but are used more where protection from cold is major concern , i.e in cooler places these Long Jackets are very useful and they add a elegant look to you, I would suggest these long jackets for working women.

Shrugs : If you are on the trendier side, An Girl who mixes style with attitude and fitness freak, then shrugs may be a best fit for you. They are bit longer then normal jackets and hoodies. I believe they make a best fit in the age group 20-30
