What are Zori?

In the Kitchen with Matcha-Colored Zori

It’s common knowledge that Japanese people don’t wear shoes indoors. However, that doesn’t mean that they go barefoot!

Zori are often called “Japanese-style sandals”. There are zori for outdoor use, but the ones Meri makes are exclusively for the indoors. They are all handmade by expert craftsmen, and it takes even the pros around 3 hours to make one pair!

Even though they are handmade, they are durable and can be machine washed.
