Our sandals are being manufactured in China. We have had a 3rd party audit our manufacturer and found them to use ethical labor practices and be very experienced in footwear, making flip-flops and sandals for major US and International brands. That said, China was not our first choice. We wanted to make Gurus in the US despite the additional costs, but manufacturing natural rubber sandals at our desired high quality and low quantities was not even possible in America. We found that all the facilities that do this type of work just don't exist here. As we hit larger scale, we would love to move some parts of the manufacturing process, if not all, to the US.
