This shoehorn is made in collaboration with Kagebayashi Shoten, in Ikoma City, Nara Prefecture; a region of Japan with a great history of traditional bamboo crafting. The individual spots or scratches seen in the finished product are a result of natural exposure of the bamboo to wind and rain, and serve to add a special uniqueness to each piece.
Light and sturdy, the shoehorn is designed to fit comfortably in your hand and be easy to use.
The longer length (76cm / 30″) allows it to be operated from a standing position, making it a fitting gift for the elderly as well as any others who may seek for effortless experience when putting the shoes on. Using a shoehorn regularly will also help to preserve the heels of your shoes, allowing you to enjoy your favourite pairs for longer!
*Since it is made by hand using natural materials, there are individual differences in shape, color and size.
