The Octavia is named after Octavia Butler. Octavia Estelle Butler was an American science fiction writer. A multiple recipient of both the Hugo and Nebula awards, in 1995 she became the first science fiction writer to receive a MacArthur Fellowship. Butler is known for blending science fiction with African-American spiritualism. Her novels include 'Patternmaster', 'Kindred', 'Dawn' and 'Parable of the Sower'.
Our sandals are hand made in Kenya with rubber outer sole and leather insole. Should the footwear get wet, dry them in a cool place and not direct sunlight.
The Octavia is particularly forgiving and a great choice for wider feet. It also is a great alternative for those who experience irritation with a thong between the toes.
