The El Cosmico Babas were produced at the Sabah Workshop in El Paso, Texas. Each pair is thoughtfully created by hand and by name, from concept to execution -- a collaboration between Liz Lambert & Mickey. These babas feature hand-stained ombré stripes hand-painted by Xochitl, an El Paso native, and current local artist who has a wide range experience in different mediums, particularly enjoying leathercraft. These Babas are not your typical slippers -- we use natural, high quality leathers, including a very special undyed vegetable tanned leather lining so that the Baba will form to the foot over time. Our El Paso worksop has enabled us to utilize & experiment with materials from all over the world.
