Native American, North America, New Mexico, ca. 1 to 500 CE. A hand woven sandal made from leaves of the desert yucca plant. Yucca leaves were used - either whole, split or separated. Sometimes they were shredded and spun into cordage. Most often the yucca was woven into the sandal's sole. Ties and loops were added to secure the sandal to the wearer's feet. This example presents a wonderful interweaving knot across the foot. Given the size, it was most likely created for a petite woman or child. Comes with wooden insert. Size: 8" L x 4" W (20.3 cm x 10.2 cm)
