Gurus are an eco-friendly, natural sandal based on an ancient Indian design worn by Mahatma Gandhi. Gurus are made from natural rubber that is sustainably sourced from the founders’ family farms in India where rubber is hand-harvested from trees in a harmless process. Using natural rubber makes Gurus biodegradable and more comfortable than traditional flip-flops. Because Gurus come from a tree, a tree is planted for every pair sold.
The Gurus design was influenced by thousands of years of Indian tradition and maintains uniqueness of the original, but adds function and comfort. Unlike regular flip-flops, Gurus stay on without “scrunching” your toes and they don’t fall off during activities like walking on the beach or even running.
Gurus was successfully kickstarted in a 30-day crowdfunding campaign and received 94% satisfaction from customers who pre-ordered. Gurus are currently available at http://www.ilovegurus.com
