Where did the inspiration to create the first Havaianas style come from?

The design of Havaianas was inspired by the Japanese sandal model, known as Zori, consisting of thin rice straw sole and fabric straps. To adapt the Japanese model to the Brazilian market, Alpargatas used rubber as a raw material and the rice grain format for the texture of the insole. And so were born the famous Havaianas!
