Nuno zori? - fabric slippers

Weave a pair of sandals from used t-shirts cut into strips! It's fun & eco-friendly! 
You can use hangers for the warp:

or your legs

Following an article in the Star some time ago I came across this novel way to re-use strips of fabric:

...  the slippers were easy to be made and carried around.
...  to make a pair, one need at least two T-shirts of a variation of colours with three type of ropes.
...  ropes used are not available in Malaysia yet, hence the 62-year-old said she had to order it from Japan
...  is able to make a pair a day.
...  can be made according to one’s feet size.
...  used only for indoors, but those who want to wear it outside could attach a piece of rubber sole at the bottom of the slippers.

And then, I found some info online :
According to Tsuku blog, Nuno zori are attractive, comfortable, nostalgic, and are said to help prevent the onset or progress of senilty.  Zori ( traditional Japanese sandals) made of cloth. What could possibly be a better gift for an elderly parent or grandparent on Respect for The Aged Day ( this year on Sept. 20th)? Especially if they are handmade by the giver, with plenty of love and affection!
