Kid folk shoes called “postoly” from Carpathian region of Ukraine. This is leather footwear, skillfully made and beautifully adorned. It is a modern replica of authentic shoes that were traditional for this region of Ukraine. They size is small but they are as festive and ornate as any adult postoly would be. As you see, these is a long leather strap that snakes around the ankle to keep a shoe in place. Marvelous piece

Delicate Korean traditional shoes made from hanji paper (special material produced from the inner bark of paper mulberry tree). They are so cute and look feminine. And also, these shoes are rather durable despite being made of paper.
